Curly mint is my favorite mint to cook with. It goes great with peas. It is has a pure spearmint flavor plus overtones of caraway seed.

The essential oil of Mentha spicata var. crispa of Nepalese origin was examined by GC/MS. It was found to be rich in L-carvone. The plant used in this study, which was regenerated from a shoot apex mericlone, was found to have a chromosome number of 2n=48. for more information, see the links.
