Here is what Richter's has to say about this mint:
''A fresh new twist to the available palette of mint flavours. Developed from apple and lime mint, it has the sweet, fruity, spearmint-like aroma of apple mint lined with a citrus edge from its lime parent. "Has tremendous culinary potential" according to Jim Westerfield, who tested this mint extensively in the kitchen of his award-winning bed-and-breakfast inn. An aggressive female mint with lavender flower spikes. Named after Hillary Clinton, First Lady of the United States and herb enthusiast''
