What are the pros? Great taste

What are the cons? goes to seed quickly

Review:

I made basil lemonade with this variety and it was very good. I also found myself munching on the leaves of my lemon basil plants while I was weeding. It was very easy to grow and productive. Though like all my other basil varieties, goes to seed rather quickly once plants are established. I should also note that these plants survived an unexpected frost early in the season.

What are the pros? always there

What are the cons? none

Review:

planted about 10 years ago, and it reliably self-seeds somewhere in the garden, always, ever since. birds love the seed heads, too. i use the young leaves and tender growth tips for a delicious lemony pesto on fish, broccoli, and pasta. a few branches in the steaming water give beans a nice flavor without sauce. lemon basil is a good and lasting friend!

Review:

This has grown well in my Tropical (Thai) climate, even during rainy season. I wasn't sure I'd like 'lemon' basil when I ordered it, but now I've tasted it I can say that I do like it. It's refreshing and light. Nice.

The best for freezing pesto

Review:

This cultivar IMO is the best for making huge batches of pesto and freezing. It doesn't loose it's fresh green color ( I never blanch, too much work) or fresh zingy lemony taste. Trader Joe's sells a lemon pasta, and pesto made from this over that, with some saute'd shrimp is one of my go-to fast but delicious meals I serve when friends drop by. It tastes like summer in March, when you reallllllly need it here in the Northeast.

Review:

I grew this basil this summer and made tea and pesto out of this type. It smells wonderful! I just had some pesto today I made from my summer batch, and it still has a wonderful lemon flavor. I will be growing this again next summer.
