A hard to get variety of basil, that's delicious with a citrusy flavour. It tolerates heat well and is suited for container growing. The fragrant scent attracts bees, butterflies and its great for flavouring sauces, drinks and desserts.
Harvest regularly to encourage bushy growth, and fertiliser sparingly (too much will reduce the fragrance of the leaves). Keep well watered and in partial-full sun.
Germination: 10-14 days under ideal conditions.
