Thai mint is a strain of peppermint with bright green, perfumed, wrinkly leaves. A popular herb in Thai cuisine, the leaves can be used fresh in spicy salads, and savoury dishes. Leaves can be chewed to reduce bad breath, and help to cleanse the palette. Thai mint has mild antiseptic properties, is a mild stimulant, and can help to relieve headaches, cold symptoms, and reduce indigestion and flatulence. Water often for lush, fresh growth.
Care: These tasty vegetables prefer well drained soils and should be fed regularly during the growing season. Mint is best grown in a pot.
