A member of the Lamiaceae family, a perennial herb up to one meter high. Self propagated by sending out extensive under ground runners. Deep green leaves.

Nombre binomial
Mentha × piperita L.

La menta piperina, piperita, monte yuyo o toronjil de menta (Mentha × piperita) es una planta herbácea de la familia de las lamiáceas; es un híbrido estéril obtenido del cruzamiento de la menta acuática (Mentha aquatica) y la yerbabuena (Mentha spicata), que se produce espontáneamente en ocasiones en las regiones templadas de Europa. Por su riqueza en componentes aromáticos, se cultiva artificialmente desde el siglo XVII, cuando por primera vez se la obtuvo de manera controlada en Inglaterra.

Siendo estéril, se reproduce casi exclusivamente por propagación vegetativa a partir de rizomas subterráneos, de manera muy agresiva. Se ha naturalizado con facilidad, y hoy es posible encontrarla en zonas templadas de ambos hemisferios.
