Ocimum basilicum

BASIL – ITALIAN LARGE LEAF is regarded as the key basil for true Neapolitan cuisine. Pick the large leaves & use fresh or dried in tomato dishes, sauces, & soups. You can use basil in the garden as a companion plant to repel aphids, mites, & tomato hornworms. This basil grows 45 to 60cm high & 30 to 38cm wide. The dark green, shiny leaves can grow up to 7cm long on a tall, erect plant that is slow to bolt. Basils are loaded with volatile oils, responsible for the heady aroma & strong flavour so essential to cooking. Annual.
