Basil Ararat
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 4.0
 

What are the pros? Prolific, heady spicy scent

What are the cons? It can sprawl.

Review:

I can't say enough about this wonderful basil. Used fresh it has a slightly citrus like clean taste with a hint of anise. Dried it sweetens and mellows to a candy-like scent I roasted a delicious hen with the fresh leaves and have the drying flowers hanging everywhere. It tolerates the heat and dryness of the summer well thriving and growing when some of my other basils stagnated. This basil could definitely be dry farmed if you wished to produce it on large scale with minimum input.

What are the pros? fantastic color

What are the cons?

Review:

Vigorous plants with great color. Like any basil, keep the top leaves picked when they start to cluster close together - that means it's about to flower and the taste will change for the worse. Perfect time to pick some for drying for the winter. When dried the leaves are almost black. People who tried my tomato-mozzarella-basil salad said that the Ararat basil was sweeter than the genovese.
