A lovely and beautiful variety of basil, with dark coloured smooth and flat leaves that are spicier than regular basil. These plants are compact and high-yielding. Can be used in to flavour dishes and looks striking as a container/garden ornamental as well.
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.
Best before date: Dec 2022
