Basil 'Large Leaf' Organic
A flavorful sweet basil variety with a light anise and clove flavor, delicious for fresh use in green and tomato salads. A prolific producer of large leaves. Try cutting and placing in a glass of water on the kitchen windowsill for several days of fresh-cut taste. Cultivated for eons, it is a sacred herb in its native India. Thrives in organic, moist, yet well-drained soils and warm summer temperatures. Harvest before flower buds form, or pinch off buds to extend harvest time. Sow twice a season for fresh tender leaves all summer.
