What are the pros? Everything!
What are the cons? Nothing
If I could only grow one variety of basil, THIS would be the one! It grows extremely fast and the butterflies love it! Insects will nibble on it occasionally, but since the plants grow so large, there is always MORE than plenty to go around. This basil also makes a great mosquito repellent; I rub the leaves on my skin while working in the garden on summer evenings. My family eats this herb fresh every single day during the growing season. And while it does dry and freeze quite well, we miss it horribly during the colder months, as "fresh" supermarket basil does not come close at all.
