What kind of mint to grow?

itsapeugeot | Jun 15, 2009 09:59 PM

I'm going to start growing mint in a pot on my back deck as I've grown tired of never using all the mint I get at the store in time.

But I want to use my mint for a few different purposes:

-morrocan dishes
-vietnamese
-mint juleps

I looked into getting the Kentucky Colonel (spearmint), which is supposedly the quintessential mint for cocktails, but I just worry it will be overpowering in the other dishes I want to make.

is there a versatile mint to grow for all these foods, or do you think the colonel will be good? I'd like to use some type of spearmint.

thanks!
