Always such a choice - we grow a range of around 40 different Mints through the season and the availability changes depending on what's ready at any given time. Although you can't divide them all into either Spearmint (spicata) or Peppermint (piperita) it does help give you an idea of their flavour, fragrance and use. Spearmints have a lower menthol content than the Peppermints and so those Mints are usually better for use in and with food whereas the Peppermints are good in drinks - but there's no hard and fast rule! Then there are those grown more for their fragrance: Eau de Cologne and Lavender Mints being amongst my favourite scents. And don't forget the fruity Mints: Apple, Grapefruit, Lemon, Lime, Orange and Strawberry are all good in Summer cocktails.
