Basil 'Genovese' 

Ocimum basilicum

Customer Favorite! Best basil for Italian Pesto.

The familiar aroma of Italian cuisine. The fresh, sweet aroma of basil is an indispensable culinary herbal delight for your table. Use in salad dressings, tomato-based dishes fish, poultry and pasta dishes. Easy to dry or freeze for later use. No garden is complete without a few plants of basil! Full sun. Vigorous growth in warm temperatures. Trim back the entire plant to 4" when it begins flowering. Harvest individual leaves or stems at any time. 

Edible flower; leaves in salads, teas, and sandwiches, attracts bees.
