What are the pros? Easy, prolific, gorgeous, yum

What are the cons? None

Review:

We love this basil. We love it! The more you cut it, the more it grows back even larger. Our leaves grew as large as MY HAND--not just the palm but my entire, flat hand! We grow in an OMRI Listed mixture of compost, coconut coir, AZOMITE and vermiculite. WOW! This basil LOVES that mixture! Our plants could grow upwards of four feet but we cut them back so frequently as to not allow them to go to seed. Of our 14 plants of the 2014 growing season, we got enough basil for pesto every week, canning over 100 pints of marinara and freezer cubes of pesto to last all winter and then some! These are easy to germinate without transplant shock of any kind. Just an all around dream of an herb! Truly an awesome purchase from Baker Creek! THANK YOU!

What are the pros? Size, production, aroma

What are the cons? Not the best tasting, but good

Review:

I planted several plants around my garden. I've never seen basil plants so large. These got four feet tall. I couldn't keep up with cutting back the seeds so I just let them seed mostly all summer. I still had good tasting basil and more than I could give away. They really help attract beneficials to my tomato bed. Only negative is that I don't think it's the best tasting Italian basil, but still good.

Review:

Of all the basils that we grow this is by far the easiest. Great for classic Pesto or Caprese salads, it's a must have for the garden. Excellent germination, fastest of all the basils to harvest size, great yield, flavorful and incredibly fragrant. If this is the first time you grow basil you should pick this one.

What are the pros? Great taste

What are the cons? None

Review:

I have been experimenting with hydroponics and thought I could try some of these seeds out. They share a "deep water system" bucket with 2 other netpots with herbs per 5 galon bucket with areation and using Hydrop. fertilizer. The yields are great and they keep comming back after each harvest. The taste is great and my wife is overjoyed to have chopped frozen basel for the coming winter

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!
