This is not the Peppermint plant that I have. It is very prolific, but the fruits are red, carry an elongnated shape and are no more than 4 to 6 ounces.

I purchased my starter plant at an herb farm in Vacaville, and this may be a cross since this plant is churning out fruit that does not meet original descriptions.
