Sweet – Italian Basil

Sweet – Italian Basil Seeds

Sweeter and milder variety of basil with medium to large leaves. Easy to grow, slow bolting and great in pots or containers.

Remember that basil’s flavour is reduced when flowers appear, so pinch out the buds when you see them!

Health & Culinary Notes

  • Nothing pairs better with basil than tomato and garlic.
  • Makes a wonderful pesto and perfect for pizza, or even potatoes.
  • Hint – tear leaves instead of cutting for better flavour.
