Frontier sources our organic peppermint from our Well Earth farmers in Oregon and Washington. Peppermint (Mentha x piperita), particularly the variety 'Black Mitchum', is grown in the warm and dry high-desert area of southeastern Washington and northern Oregon, an ideal climate for growing organic peppermint because it discourages the diseases associated with humid climates. Peppermint is in fact a hybrid of watermint and spearmint.
