Ocimum Basilicum

150 SEEDS

Genovese -Organic Basil

Popular ‘pesto’ style Italian large leaf variety, the dark green large leaves of the Genovese Organic Basil have a fresh spicy fragrance. A great option for pots and containers.

The basil flavour is reduced when flowers start to form, so pinch out the buds as soon as they appear!

Health & Culinary

Nothing pairs better with basil than tomato and garlic. This variety makes a wonderful pesto and is perfect for Pizza, or even a flavour hit to potato dishes. Hint – when preparing, tear leaves instead of cutting for better flavour.
