This is the classic Italian basil, and the crucial ingredient for pesto! Large dark green leaves are tender, delicious, and aromatic. This plant loves warm weather, so be sure to wait until all danger of frost has passed before planting. Does beautifully in containers. Slow to bolt, but when it does, be sure to pinch the blooms to keep the harvest coming. Once it has bolted, use the flowers as garnish for salads, pasta, and drinks.
