Dolce Fresca Basil

I grew Dolce Fresca Basil last season which I believe is a AAS Variety. This is a superior basil variety. It grew very well in my garden. It is a large leaf Italian type basil. I am growing it again this year and I recommend it. Dave Salamone Indianapolis, IN Johnson County Master Gardener
