Sweet Basil Herb is the most well-known and well used of all basil varieties and is the key ingredient in Pesto sauces (yes, it’s super easy to make your own pesto!). In warmer climates Basil is a perennial but grown seasonally most everywhere else and can be moved indoors during winter. This variety is also a heavy producer and can be continuously harvested all summer. Perfect in pestos, caprese, tomato dishes, soups, salads, sauces, pasta dishes, and seasoned oils and butters. For fullest flavor from your basil leaves, add in during the last few minutes of cooking.

Plant 12” to 18” apart inches apart in a compost rich, well-draining soil. Basil plants need 6-8 hours sunlight daily, but benefit from some afternoon shade. Cutting leaves frequently encourages more leaf growth and plant bushiness. As with all basil, pinch flower heads off before they open as the plant will no longer produce the fragrant leaves if it has flowered.
