Basil - Blue Spice

         
 
3 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 

New! (Ocimum basilicum) Vigorous plant with dense spikes of light purple flowers enclosed in showy deep purple bracts, making for an especially fine appearance in pots or in the garden. Heavy fragrance with spicy vanilla overtones that makes a pleasant contribution to both fruit salads and savory dishes.

Review:

i usually buy certain varieties when my intuition of a unique flavor is aroused. boy was i right! this basil is one of a kind! it has smaller leaves but it's big on flavor! had to keep a plant alive inside over the winter so it's ready to plant when it's warm enough. couldn't bare to let it die! also will be growing this for my volunteer community farm group as well! thanks again one of the best seed companies in the universe!!! p.s. i do agree it also makes a great tea!

Review:

If you are looking for a genovise basil this not the one to buy. Because it has a very different flavor and leaf texture. I found though that it makes not to bad tasting sun tea,made with peppermint,spearmint and fresh blueberries. I took mostly blue spice basil in amount,than Peppermint,than spearmint,until a glass gallon jar was about 1/8 full(for a stronger tea I would use more)than filled it with filtered water about half way. After that I added maybe two Tablesoons of blueberries and sqaushed them with my fingers to open them up to release their juice,than I added them to the jar and let it sit in the sun all day. I hope this gives you an idea of what can be done with it. Because I really didn't know what to use it for since it wasn't a huge succes in fruit salad for me.
