Review:

i was so exited when i got this seeds. at first they germinate pretty fast but after that i noticed they weren't growing fast at all, i did realized that with the Florida heat the little bit of water was not enough, once i started watering, they started growing so fast, horse manure is perfect for this plants, so sweet so much flavor amazing strong sweet smell. thanks so much guys!

Review:

My father hollowed out a large log for me to plant some herbs it and I choose this basil along with a few other herbs. When the seeds arrived I rushed outside to plant them. The seeds were tiny! So dummy me thought that I should go ahead and just sprinkle a good number of seeds on the soils surface. So four days later, lo and behold, I'm sure all of those seeds how to have sprouted! I have at least 50 little basil sprouts popping up! I seriously underestimated the germination rate aha. This is a great, hardy little plant. Sometimes I would forget to water it regularly and in the heat of Florida that can be crucial to plants! But not these guys!! Grows really fast and had way to much basil. 5 Stars-Awesome!

Review:

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.

Review:

This plant produced quite well for us in our first year as gardeners. We used it fresh, we froze it in little packets for later use and I dried it. I could cut them down after I used all the leaves and more would grow. The smell was heavenly when I brought them in to prepare.
