Basil Kitchen Blend seeds combines three unique basil varieties for utility in the kitchen. Genovese basil has big smooth green leaves, for use in pesto and pasta. Rosie Red Rubin basil seeds bring distinctive colour and pungent flavour to salads and vinegars. Cinnamon basil’s leaves are lovely as a garnish and nice choice for herbal teas. It has smaller leaves than the Genovese and lovely pink flowers. Grow on the window sill, in the garden or in containers on the patio. Use the edible flowers in salads too! All types of basil enjoy warm, freely draining soil and lots of moisture in summer heat. Basil also makes sensational microgreens – they take a little while to germinate, but are worth the wait for gourmet garnishes.
