Jumbo mint


By Roleigh

Gloucestershire, United Kingdom Gb

When in the south of France recently, we were served a dish accompanied by fronds of excellent-tasting mint. The stalks and leaves were about four times the size that we are used to and we have seen nothing like it in UK. What is the variety and where can we buy a root?
