Noteworthy Characteristics

Genuinely Cuban, Mojito Mint, Mentha x villosa, is a spectacular culinary herb providing the distinct, aromatic and complex taste to the celebrated Mojito beverage. It's made with mint, and the directions require "muddling" or crushing the leaves in the bottom of the glass. It is clearly different from most other mints with a scent and flavor that are agreeably mild and warm, not pungent nor overly sweet like other mints.

Growing & Harvesting Information

Mojito mint plants thrive in sun or partially shaded spots that have consistently moist, fertile soil. If space is limited, it grows great in containers. 

Harvest leaves once the plant is 8 to 10 inches tall. A good rule of thumb is to limit harvesting to a third of the plant at a time. Wait for at least that much growth before harvesting again. Once the plant is established in the garden, this shouldn't be a problem. For the best flavor, harvest leaves in the morning before the hot sun hits them. You can keep stems in a glass of water until you're ready to use them.

Uses & Cooking Information

While recipes call for any available variety of Spearmint, the real Mojito can only be made with the true Mojito Mint. Not just great in beverages, Mojito Mint also makes a great seasoning for meats and confections.
