Basil – large leaf Genovese (sweet basil)


Herb Description and Taste


It’s the most common variety of basil with a wonderful spicy aroma.  It is typically used in pesto and tomato-based dishes.


Plant in a sunny area and keep soil moist.  Pruning off the tallest flowers as soon as possible will encourage foliage growth and keep the plant going strong. The leaves should be picked when the plant reaches 6 to 8 inches tall. When harvest early in the morning, the leaves are juicer.
