Everleaf Emerald Towers Basil

Tidy plants have a stately columnar habit and offer extensive season-long harvests of traditional Genovese flavored dark green, glossy leaves; flowers are delayed up to 10 weeks later than standard basils. Upright, plants can reach 36” when grown in containers, in-ground, or hydroponics plantings. We set out transplants the first week of June and now it is the 1st of September and they still have not flowered.   Resistance to downy mildew and fusarium.
