Likewise, people ask, what does chocolate mint plant taste like?
Peppermint With a Hint of Chocolate The 'Chocolate' cultivar has the aroma of chocolate, but the taste in foods more closely resembles the orange citrus flavor of the citrata form of mint. The plant grows to about 2 feet tall and easily spreads by rhizomes into an attractive ground cover.
Beside above, how do you grow chocolate mint? Chocolate mint thrives alongside water gardens or in damp spots in the yard. Lushest growth occurs in moist soil in partial shade. Crush fresh leaves into water for a refreshing beverage, or add to tea or coffee. You can also dry leaves for flavoring desserts, like ice cream, meringues, quick breads, or cakes.
