Description

[75 days] Classic Italian basil is one of the most popular sweet basils on the planet. Its rich aroma and high oil content allow it to beautifully season just about any dish, and the flowers are great for garnishing drinks, salads, soups and desserts. This basil is super easy to grow, produces a huge crop of leaves, needs very little other than good heat and sunshine, and is relatively slow to bolt. Use fresh in sauces, salads or pesto, or dry and use as a seasoning.
