How to collect mint

Mint nutritional value

Mint is a native greek herb that is divided into different species that differ mainly in foliage. It has shoots with height of 30 to 80 cm and thrives in cool areas. The overground part of the plant contains essential oil. It is a medicinal, aromatic and bee-feeding plant.

Mint collection is available all year round if we want to use it green. When we want to collect it for drying and storage, the best period is before its flowering, ie mid-summer. The mint’s beneficial parts are its leaves.

It has a characteristic intense aroma, while its cultivation needs attention and need to be limited in pots, as the rhizome spreads, drowning the surrounding plants.

Fresh mint contains vitamin A, C, niacin, folic acid (b9), ω-3 and ω-6 fatty acids, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium and phytosterols.
