Botanical Name
Ocimum basilicum

A fun basil to grow where for one of our favourite herbs, you get bang for buck (and growing space). Similar flavour, just not quite as strong, this variety produces very large crinkled leaves, to 12 cm long and nearly as wide. Great for pasta dishes or salads that want some more greenery added with that distinct flavour. 300 seeds.
