Chocolate water mint is a hardy herb that is a hybrid cultivar of a peppermint plant with a citrus mint plant. It was further developed to produce chocolate overtones.
For some the chocolate taste is subtle. Even so, this unusual variety of mint is worthy of a place in your edible water garden.
This herb is commonly used in cooking, salads, and as a healthy tea.
