Herb Description and Taste
Purple basil offers a slightly spicy flavor, sweet and spicy – like notes reminiscent of cinnamon and licorice. It got its name from its deeply colored leaves. The curled purple large toothed leaves can grow 3 inches in length and have a ruffled appearance.
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 because it’s when the concentration of aromatic oils are at their highest.
