Botanical

Peppermint is part of the Lamiaceae family. It's about a hybrid plant, cross between Aquatic Mint (Mentha aquatica) and Spearmint (Mentha spicata), which is why it is common to find an “x” in its Latin name. If this famous “x” is not systematically present, it is thanks to Linnaeus, who recognized it as a species in its own right.

Reaching 60 cm in height, Peppermint has opposite leaves 2 to 2 and decussate: the orientation of the leaves varies by 90° at each node. The leaves are elongated, dark green in color with toothed edges. As with all mints, a simple crinkle releases its powerful odor. It is sown in spring then harvested in summer, just before it flowers. The spike flowers are pink, blue or purplish and grouped in whorls.

Peppermint is grown in temperate regions, on a light soil rich in limestone and clay. It is found in Europe as well as in Asia, North Africa and North America.
