Basil - Corsican

1 Review | Write a Review

New! Mediterranean heirloom type from Napoleon's island birthplace off the French and Italian coasts. This versatile type comes in varying degrees of green to purple, often spectacularly mottled in both. A competent culinary type that makes a scintillating contribution in the border as well. Recommended!

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.
