Product Overview

This Bonnie Sweet Mint is one of the easiest herbs to grow. This variety has extra large leaves and a refreshing flavor that most cooks really like for chopping into sauces and drinks. This plant can grow quickly and spread easily, though, so be thoughtful where you site it. For this reason many people grow it in a pot. Keep pinched to encourage tender new leaves. This is a perennial for gardeners in zones 5-11. Plant arrives in a biodegradable pot with a well-established root system and hardened off for easy transplanting in the garden.
  • Sweet mint loves moist soil in full sun to partial shade
  • Great for containers
  • Ships in a 4 in. plant-able, biodegradable pot by jiffy
  • Plant spacing: 24 in. apart

Questions & Answers

How often am I supposed to water the plant?

Asked by: Watermelon
As with most varieties of mint, short of it being allowed to become completely desiccated there is no way you are going to kill this plant through neglect. It is very adaptable and very resilient. I watered mine when I planted it and it took right off and has received only what falls from the sky and what it might get from me watering nearby plants.This one seems to be even more invasive than my peppermint which is great in the confined area it is planted in.It is not near as fragrant or flavorful though so it may be removed.

Maturity, change pot

After how many days will this plant stop growing? In other words... When is the time to get another pot from store to grow mint? Thanks.

4.5 in. Mint-Sweet is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for cocktails This is a spearmint, not a peppermint. It does not have that medicinal menthol taste so some folks are complaining about lack of flavor. However, menthol and alcohol taste HORRIBLE together! Use a spearmint like this for mojitos, mint juleps, etc. and use peppermint for candy and digestion teas.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very weak mint smell and taste This variety grows very easily and looks nice, but when it comes to actual use in food or beverages, it is practically without any merit besides as a garnish. The smell and taste is pleasant on its own if eaten raw, but because the potency of its menthol is so weak (about 10% of the spearmint variety) the amount of leaves that would have to be used in order to provide any district mint flavor in a dish makes me unable to utilize this plant in almost all recipes calling for "mint". I would liken this plant to "minty lettuce".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great mint! I purchased this mint last year and it's still going strong now in two different pots. It has a really nice sweet mint flavor that is great to use for tea, smoothies, fruit garnish, chopped in salads, and I've even used it as a green in soups. The large, crinkly, leaves make it easy to chop. My original plant sent out shoots that took root in another pot, so now I have two. I'm pretty sure it could take over an entire garden if allowed to do so. A medium to large pot works nicely. The leaves died off in the winter, but it all regrew in the spring.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Is this the mint used in mojitos? I asked a Cuban bartender recently, he said what he uses is called "mojito mint" (it's not spearmint, which is what you find at Home Depot). And of course you can buy quasi-fresh mint in grocery stores (its leaves look a lot like these). So I suspect this is the mint used by most bartenders for mojitos, which is the kind I want to grow (for the obvious reason). So can anyone tell me- is this "mojito mint"?
