I’m one of your customers.
I’m currently looking for Moroccan Green Mint (see photo of plant) to buy as plants and grow here in New Jersey. Your online catalog doesn’t list it, but lists many others. Can you tell me which of the mints you offer is closest to Moroccan Green Mint?
I use the fresh leaves to make traditional Moroccan mint tea.
This looks like a form of spearmint. Compared to other mints, the leaves of mint have very short petioles (leaf stems) and your mint has this characteristic. There are hundreds, maybe thousands, of local varieties of spearmint in use around the world. Our regular spearmint (catalogue no. P4040) will not be exactly the same in flavour and aroma, but it may be close enough.
