Mentha suaveolens variegata Pineapple Mint


Lots of fragrant Pineapple Mint!


A pure white stem from a Pineapple Mint Plant.

Pineapple Mint  is hardy to zone 6, and likes full sun in all but the hottest areas where afternoon shade is preferable.  Make yourself a tea barrel and use Pineapple Mint often. It is important to keep any rogue green stems cut off. If left to grow these totally green leaved stems will outgrow the variegated ones and you will loose the variegation. The result will still be tasty but it will be Apple Mint instead of Pineapple Mint!

On the flip side of all green leaves are the stems that are totally devoid of color. These segments are doomed to death because without some green they are unable to make food. They also sunburn easily which can also hasten their demise. Fortunately, these albino stems occur infrequently.

Pineapple Mint makes a great addition to our 
Tea Herb Garden Six Packs.
