Three unique beautiful basils!
Plant basil out when it's consistently warm at night.
Emily Genovese Basil
Emily is a compact bushy Genovese-type variety great in containers. Grows only to 12 inches. Intensely flavored medium-sized dark green leaves are perfect for making pesto and flavoring tomato dishes. Keeps well after harvesting.
Basil may have originated in India and has been cultivated throughout the world for over 5,000 years. This variety is petite, but potent!
Lettuce Leaf Basil
An Italian heirloom considered the most productive of all the sweet basils, on 18 – 24 inch, vigorous, bushy plants. Very large, crinkled and highly aromatic leaves that look like lettuce are more sweet than spicy, and not quite as sharp as other basils. The large leaves take some of the work out of making pesto or basil oil, and are excellent wrappers for grilled vegetables, fish, and appetizers.
Siam Queen Thai Basil
Siam Queen adds tremendous punch to any Asian-inspired dish, with its spicy anise-clove scent and flavor. The large and lovely violet-pink flowers are edible, too.
A member of the mint family, basils have been cultivated for thousands of years. It was introduced in ancient times to Asia through the spice routes.
Plants are 12-18" tall and happy in containers.
