Grapefruit Mint
Mentha x piperita 'Grapefruit'
Uses: Culinary/Medicinal/Beverage/Aromatic/Industrial Duration: Perennial (hardy in zones 5-9)
This beguiling mint has a spearmint flavour with a strong grapefruit overtone. A hybrid of Mentha suaveolens and M. x piperita grapefruit mint startles the taste buds with a truly unique, unsweetened grapefuit taste that marries well with fruit salads. In the heat of summer, a sorbet flavoured with grapefruit mint is an unusual and refreshing treat. Give grapefruit mint a moist soil with sun or part shade and you will have plenty to use in cooking, to scatter amongst the vegetables in the garden as for mint’s insect repellent qualities, or to give away to friends and neighbours. Keeping mint restrained in pots or bottomless buckets sunk in the ground will limit its enthusiastic tendency to spread out into the garden.
