Product Abstract: Mentha piperita, also known as 'candy mint', was once thought to be a species, but has been found to be a perennial hybrid that only proliferates by spreading its rhizomes underground. A very hearty fast-growing herb, it can grow anywhere. It has reddish veins and lightly fuzzy leaves, and its interesting chromosome count can vary between 66 and 120 chromosomes. Peppermint is used as a flavouring agent in the food industry, and in soaps, candles and toiletries.
