Really interesting and flavorful! Known as Reyhan throughout the varied nations of southwestern Asia. Has a distinctive aroma, both lemony and spice like.

What are the pros? Grows quickly

What are the cons? not very sweet basil-like

Review:

This is a wonderful herb that adds a lot of flavor. It has oregano-like overtones, a hint of anise, and lots of peppery spiciness. As long as you don't expect it to taste like common sweet basil, it's wonderful. Very easy to grow due to disease- and pest-resistance and vigor, it grows very quickly compared to the other kinds of basil I planted. I sowed it very late--well into August, and I was able to use it in the kitchen within weeks and it's still producing leaves. To compare, I planted some sweet basil at the same time hoping to be able to eke out a late crop, and it never got mature enough to use and has pretty much stopped growing at this point. Terrific in any kind of Middle Eastern or Asian dishes. I will definitely be planting this regularly in my garden. Germinates quickly and well.

What are the pros? Easy to grow with rich taste

What are the cons? Love it

Review:

I grew up in Iran where this basil is served everyday with main meals. It's an easy to grow basil that you can eat add to salads and sandwiches without over powering the other ingredients. Try a handful of the leaves on the side of fish. I eat it with bread and cheese. You can use the basil in many ways that you can not use the common basil.

Review:

Planted this basil later than other herbs, but still germinated and produced well. Was surprised to find out how much more flavorful this basil is than traditional basil varieties. I have already started this basil indoors for the 2014 season. Persian basil inspired me to branch out and try other new basil varieties Baker Creek is offering.
