Spearmint grows well in nearly all temperate climates.
The mean temperature between 20°C - 40°C during major part of the growing period and rainfall between 100-110 cm is ideal for its growth.
Well drained loam or sandy loam soils rich in organic matter having pH between 6 and 8.2 are ideally suited for Spearmint cultivation.
