There is a hint of Blackcurrant scent over a spearmint base with this beautiful plant, which produces dark green leaves
with a flush of Blackcurrant colour in early growth and a profusion of tasty leaves during the growing season.
It is hardy and like most species of the mint family has a spreading habit, so is well suited to being grown in a container.
Mentha spp. ‘Blackcurrant’ can be used on summer drinks, tea, ice cream and sorbets.
