Abstract The quality and quantity of oil obtained from three different peppermint Mentha x piperita L. origins and the spearmint Mentha spicata L. were compared in micropropagated and conventionally propagated plants in northern Finland (64°40′N) in 1997–1998. Each block comprised M. piperita peppermint plants from three different origins; namely, the United States, Bulgaria and Egypt (Black Mitcham), and a spearmint, M. spicata of Egyptian origin. The micropropagated plantlets and…
