Thought I was growing chocolate mint. Now I'm not too sure. Doesn't look like mint leaves to me??? Perhaps a different kind of mint?

Looks like a mint growth habit & looks like square stems.

This is my first time growing mint and I always thought that mint leaves were pointed at the tips.....didn't expect to see them rounded. Also, I've had fresh mint where it was almost like putting a piece of mint gum in my mouth. This has a very subtle mint taste....definitely sweet.....guess I was just expecting different.
Don't think I'll be growing this variety again.

Is it like radishes and peppers the amount of water/fertilizer it gets affects flavor?
