Peppermint was first described in 1753 by Carl Linnaeus from specimens that had been collected in England; he treated it as a species, but it is now universally agreed to be a hybrid. It is a cross between watermint& spearmint. Although the genus Mentha comprises more than 25 species, the one in most common use is Peppermint.
