Heirloom.

The aroma of mint will make you close your eyes as your thoughts drift to a summer day. Mint not only enhances iced tea and mixed drinks, it is also a wonderful surprise flavor in savory dishes, including meats, stews, and vegetable fritters. Tiny flowers are loved by bees.
This common mint is neither peppermint, spearmint, nor any other specific type. Mints readily cross-pollinate, so plants grown from seed are more variable.

25 mg seed packet.
