Ocimum basilicum

  • Pesto basil from Italy
  • Shiny, large leaves
  • More pronounced flavour
  • Very best for pesto
  • Certified Organic

Genovese organic basil seeds are the very best Italian pesto variety of basil. This is the traditional Italian heirloom variety of basil. It has shiny, large, almond-shaped leaves that have a more pronounced flavour, and store well if chopped and frozen in ice cube trays. Pinch growing tips for bushier plants that grow to 60cm (24") tall. Basil is a heat-loving tender annual plant that requires good drainage and ample moisture during hot weather. If flowers develop, either save the resulting seeds or separate them from the plants and sprinkle over pasta or salads. Basil flowers are highly attractive to honeybees and other wild pollinators.

Basil can be planted as a companion to tomato plants. It is said that basil improves the flavour of tomatoes.
