This study was conducted to determine the effect of different planting times on yield and characters of different mint varieties (Mentha arvensis var. piperascens, M. piperita Mitcham, M. piperita Eskişehir Nanesi and M. piperita Prilubskaja). The field trials were carried out at GAP Agricultural Research Station of Çukurova University, Faculty of Agriculture in the Harran Plain conditions in years of 1993 and 1994. Autumn transplants gave higher herb yields and essential oil contents than plants transplanted in spring. The highest herb and essential oil yields were obtained from M. piperita Prilubskaja mint variety. Also the level of essential oil was affected by planting times and mint varieties.
