Abstract:  Peppermint (Mentha piperita Linn.) is a perennial, glabrous and strongly scented herb belonging to family Lamiaceae. The plant is aromatic, stimulant, stomachic and carminative and widely used in food, cosmetics and medicines. Peppermint oil is one of the most popular and widely used essential oil in food products, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, etc. Ruthless exploitation has resulted in drastic decrease of this natural resource. Hence, it is necessary to establish a suitable protocol for rapid in vitro propagation of this medicinally important species. A high frequency and rapid regeneration protocol was developed by researchers at Botany Department Gulbarga University, Gulbarga from shoot tip and nodal explants on Murashige and Skoog’s (MS) medium supplemented with either 6- benzyl amino purine (BAP; 1 mg/l)) or zeatin (0.25 mg/l).
