Italian Large Leaf Basil
Ocimum basilicum. Larger leaves mean more pesto in a hurry! Sweet and spicy leaves grow to 3-4 inches and are great for salads, including Caprese, that perfect combination of basil, tomato, mozzarella and olive oil. Not from our seed bank collection, but your purchase supports our conservation mission.
- 12-18 " tall.
