Ocimum basilicum 'Genovese' (3")
Genovese basil is the classic basil for pesto and caprese salad. It has a wonderful fragrance, with a strong hint of clove. It grows to 2 ft tall, 15 inches wide. It should be pinched back frequently to assure plenty of leaf material, and planted in rich soil with adequate water and fertilizer. Plant several times during the season so your final crop you harvest in the fall is fresh and delicious.
