Walla Walla, WA
What are the pros? Color, flavor, aroma
What are the cons? Breakage at the base
This is very aromatic and has all the strong basil qualities. You need less of this in your dishes than normal sweet green basil. Doesn't bolt too fast and when you pick the flowers off, the plant keeps getting bushier.
These were all direct seeded and had a hard time getting started but once I figured out the watering schedule, they started growing well. The only major issue I saw was a few plants broke off at their base when they became about a foot tall. I'm hoping it was an anomaly because I have about 5 more plants coming up.
