Mentha x gracilis 'Madelene Hill'
(hardy in zones 6-9)
(Red-stemmed apple mint) A very unusual mint for the fact that its aroma and flavour are a heady blend of peppermint and spearmint. Theory suggests that this should never happen because peppermint and spearmint oils are produced by separate biochemical pathways that are not supposed to coexist in the same plant. Thankfully nature doesn’t always play by the rules, as this is one incredible mint that will easily become the "go-to" mint in your kitchen. It was first popularized by Madalene Hill, a longtime American doyenne of herbs, who grew it at her farm in Texas, where for many years it was the main mint featured in the farm’s restaurant. Doublemint has glossy green leaves and red-purple stems, and like most mints it will spread via underground runners if not contained.
