    Too Tough

    Produced abundant big beautiful leaves, but they were a little too tough to use fresh e.g. in caprese salad.

    Excellent Basil

    This is the king of basil's with its large leaves and stately appearance. Easy to grow, with a height of about 12 inches, this basil is not only attractive but performed well and is deliciously fragrant. We use for quick harvesting for pesto but this can be used for much more. Delicious and will always have a place in our garden.
