Swiss Mint is a rare variety native to Europe that is not so easily found in America! Its flavor is very unique in that is tastes like a cross between spear and peppermint.  The plant is vigorous maturing with long spear-like foliage and mauve colored blossoms.   Aromatic and culinary variety.  Used to compliment sweet dishes, beverages, salads, vegetable dishes, soups, and sauces.
