What are the pros? beautiful smell
What are the cons? none
I filled 6 little seed-started pods with these seeds and all 6 pods had germination. And now that they have finally gotten a bit tall, I have clipped some to freeze and WOW!! Such a surprisingly sweet scent!
I knew by the product description that it was a sweet variety of basil, but I had completely underestimated how sweet. People describe "vanilla" undertones but my nose smells something more berry-like. Maybe it's just me. But I didn't really notice until I cut some off. I think a lot of the sweetness comes from the stems and not the leaves, perhaps? Who knows. Anyway, I can't wait to use this in a chicken soup. I like putting brown sugar in my broth for that sweet chicken taste. Adding this sweet blue spice basil will be the perfect addition.
