Ocimum basilicum

A basil with very large leaves and an intense aroma. Perfect for Italian cuisine. Basil puts the finishing touches on e.g. salads, sauces, soups, meat and vegetable dishes. Used fresh or dried. Can be grown both indoors in the window frame or outdoors in containers. Very sensitive to cold. Place sunny and warm in light, nutritious soil with regular water supply.

Harvested basil can be frozen for later use. Place whole leaves in a plastic bag and crush with fingers after the leaves have frozen.
