Description

Spearmint is a perennial herb plant that grows from mid-summer to autumn. It is often found in home gardens because of its pleasing scent and many culinary uses, but its essential oil is what truly makes spearmint shine. Though its aroma is first and foremost minty, its gentle sweetness makes it softer than its sharp mint cousins – spearmint is a mellower version of peppermint.

History of Spearmint

Spearmint’s history is widespread, but most agree the plant originated in the Mediterranean region. The genus name Mentha comes from Roman mythology, where legend claims the goddess Proserpine became jealous of the nymph, Menthe, for the love she stole from Proserpine’s husband, Pluto. In her rage, Proserpine transformed the woodland nymph into a lowly plant to be trampled forever beneath the feet of mortals. Though Pluto could not change her back, he endowed Menthe with the lovely mint aroma we now know as spearmint. The plant later made its way over to the New World in the 1500s, where it has since left a far-reaching footprint in North American soil.
