Easily grown in average, evenly moist, well-drained soils. Feed lightly in spring. Harvest mint leaves before bloom for best flavor. Shear occasionally to promote dense growth. Spreads quickly by underground stems if not contained. A great garnish for ice cream or iced tea, this gourmet mint has a wonderful hint of orange mixed with the minty flavor. Crush fresh leaves into water or juice for a refreshing beverage, or add to iced tea. Spreads rapidly. Grows well in containers.
