Review:

Last year, 2016, I grew 5 different types of basil. Most were too licorice strong tasting. I love black licorice, but don't like it overpowering in my basil. My other smaller leaf types seemed to attract more bugs( than this lettuce type) and they dried out more easily, with brown leaf spots in the horrid heat of last summer. The purple and purple/green types were too specifically flavored and odd tasting for many recipes. The smaller leafed green ones tended to have thicker leaves (not delicate enough) and a strong licorice/anise flavor. This LETTUCE BASIL was perfect! It had delicate textured leaves that still held up to rolling/chiffonade, had large enough leaves to NOT have to pick tons of them to make pesto, and the flavor was mild, but still a pleasant, true, rich basil flavor. It lasted outdoors long into the fall in zone 6. It froze beautifully just tossed in baggies. Didn't get as spindly tall as the others-Fuller. Just watered regularly and had happy, healthy, pretty plants.

Review:

This is officially my new favorite basil! It truly has leaves equatable to the size of young lettuce. The flavor is definately there!! So good to wrap a piece of watermelon in a huge basil leaf! If it doesnt have enough room the taste of the leaf gets really strong. I had 3 overcrowded pots and they all grew but not as large as the ones in the ground and with a super concentrated flavor. Still like it though, give it enough room!! Love this basil!! Oh yah the potted ones flowered already while the grounders have not.

Review:

This Basil is great raw in salads and incorporates well with other flavors without overpowering... crinkly large light green leaves that look a lot like lettuce but has a definite basil flavor and fragrance - good more flavorful and nutritious substitute for lettuce on burgers :) My first year growing this type, high germination rate. It will be grown again and again

Review:

last summer was the first time I've tried this variety. Was not disappointed. Very easy to grow, beautiful shape plant, huge leaves, delicate taste, excellent for salads and eating raw. Then in the fall started the plant in the basement under T5 lamp, it was a success! Continued growing through winter. definitely going to grow this season.

Review:

I rarely have luck with growing herbs from seed, but these were easy. My little daughter dumped a packet into my garden - I thought I wasn't going to have any basil this year. It all came up with zero effort. Plants are very large and beautiful with modest watering. Time for pesto!
