BASIL, Genovese

Genovese basil, often referred to as a sweet basil, is one of the most popular herbs we grow! It is a classic authentic Italian sweet basil with large dark-green leaves that lend excellent flavor to a wide range of dishes and pesto. Plants are slow to bolt and benefit from pinching to promote branching and higher yields. Plants require moist, well-drained soil.
