Basilico Mostruoso Basil


A great Italian Mammoth-leaf basil, with very large, blistering leaves and a strong licorice-like flavor. Plants grow over a foot tall, forming a dense bush with 3"x 4" bright green leaves. Besides being able to make a lot of pesto at once, you can also use whole leaves like you would grape leaves to wrap around a rice/vegetable stuffing, or as a garnish under large slices of tomato. Also quite suitable for drying.

Best Basil Ever

I've been buying this basil for probably 20 years. It's the best!! Very large leaves and it freezes well. I freeze enough to last all winter for sauces...etc.

I love this place!

I was able to find seeds (especially medicinal seeds) I couldn’t locate anywhere else. Excellent quality down to the re-sealable envelope the seeds come in. If I had the means I’d buy much more but for now I’m grateful for the ones I can pick from so many awesome choices each year! Thank you and keep up the great work!!
