      Mentha x villosa

      If you are herb gardening and you are cooking, there is every reason to include mint mojito plants, especially this famous variety.

      While recipes call for any available variety of Spearmint, the real mojito can only be made with the true Mojito Mint. This culinary herb, a native to Cuba, was previously impossible to get in North America but thanks to Toronto mojito enthusiast Catherine Nasmith who visited Cuba in 2006, we now have the authentic plant from Cuba. Not just great in beverages, Mojito Mint also makes a great seasoning for meats and confections.

      It is clearly different from most other mints - the scent of this aromatic herb and flavor are agreeably mild and warm, not pungent nor overly sweet like other mints. Recent studies have also concluded that the smell of Mint Plants has been proven to stimulate brain activity and may be useful before a test as well as in the kitchen!
