Product Description

Costa Rican / Jamaican Mint – Minty yet Savory!

While this mint goes by many names (Serpentine savory, Costa Rican mint, Jamaican Mint tree, Kama Sutra Mint tree, Jamaican peppermint…yikes!), it is known for the minty savory flavor it gives to foods. Use the leaves either fresh or dried in soups, salads, stuffings, sauces or as a tea. The Costa Rican / Jamaican Mint grows as a shrub or small tree (5-10ft) and has ¼ – ½ inch oval, glossy, lime green leaves with a strong peppermint scent. It’s an aggressive grower, so it won’t take over your garden and the flowers in summer will attract butterflies. The plant is tender and will not survive a freeze but it does well as a houseplant with lots of sun. Zones 9-11.

Note: We’re so sorry… but due to agricultural restrictions we cannot ship any plants to international countries, or the states of California, Hawaii and Alaska. Also, no citrus trees can be shipped outside of the state of Florida.
