Product Description

Aromatic annual growing to 60cm. Large fragrant green leaves. The best variety for making pesto. Can be grown in containers. Can be used fresh or dried.

This is the classic Italian basil, and the crucial ingredient for pesto! Large, dark green leaves are tender, delicious, and aromatic. This plant loves warm weather, so be sure to wait until all danger of frost has passed before planting. Does beautifully in containers. Slow to bolt as long as you regularly pinch the blooms. Once it has bolted, use the flowers as garnish for salads, pasta, and drinks.
