Basil Sweet Seed Pack Size*:


Sweet Basil "Italian" is an improved selection of the common sweet basil variety. The variety "Italian" has been selected for its superior cultivation characteristics, most specifically the delayed onset of flowering, which generally marks the end of the harvesting period for common basil varieties. Whilst Sweet Basil "Italian" will eventually flower, regular deep trimming, will prolong the vegetative phase of growth, ensuring you continue to harvest bunches and bunches of tender crispy basil for many months. Sweet Basil "Italian" is an improved selection of the common sweet basil variety.

Advantages of Sweet Basil "Italian"

  • Famous Italian basil flavour (often used in the best focacia, pizza, pasta dishes - not the chewy, fury perennial basil varieties!)
  • Desirable tender-leafed basil, better for salads and cooking, not just garnishes!
  • Harvestable for an extended period as this is a slow bolting variety (delayed onset of floral development)
