Alvaaka - yaqui basil

The Yazhi basil was incredible, it was very flavorful and robust. We planted 3 indigenous gardens with American Indian students in our Indian Education program here in Utah. Thank you very much for all the seeds, we are still waiting to harvest most of our produce, but have lettuce, herbs etc.
