What are the pros? Handsome, long season, tasty
What are the cons? smaller leaves, but so what?
I have suspected that some basil types did not like the dry air where we live, so I ordered a type that came from a Mediterranean climate, and this variety was really successful and pleasing. Leaves were smaller than many types and a bit sparse on the stems, but the plants made up for this in height, to nearly a yard tall. The purple color was handsome. I made pesto from this a few times and found it the most flavorful ever. Plants lasted nearly to December here in California.
