Meant the Other Mint?

The difference between spearmint and peppermint 

IT'S VERY HARDY

Mint is a perennial that grows with abandon, starting when the soil begins to warm up in late March or April. Grow it year-round in your AeroGarden!

TWO MAIN TYPES

Spearmint and peppermint are the two most common and widely available of the many mint species. Of the two, spearmint is the one almost always sold in grocery stores and markets. So when a recipe calls for mint, it’s generally spearmint, recognizable for its light-green, spear-shaped leaves and that classic sweet mint flavor. Spearmint is also commonly used to make gum and candy.

Peppermint leaves are darker green and smoother than spearmint. The big difference is the presence of menthol, which gives peppermint a much more potent flavor. Peppermint is typically dried for tea and made into flavoring for candy, toothpaste, and other products.
