- Main Menu
Few of the mints come true from seeds. The mints (Mentha species) are a promiscuous lot. They crosspollinate among themselves with abandon resulting in an almost infinite range of varieties. As hybrids they are either infertile and can’t produce seeds or they do not produce seeds that grow plants like the parent. Even the familiar peppermint is recognized as a hybrid that does not produce seeds. If you see peppermint or spearmint seeds offered be warned that these will not produce anything like the true mints we know and love.
