(Ocimum canum) This basil has slightly fuzzy stems, hence the name. Delicious flavor that lends its self well to many Oriental dishes. Popular in Thailand.

Review:

Did not care for this lemon basil at all.....nor did my friends. Unlike sweet basil, the leaves were tough and the lemon flavor was overpowering in dishes. Strong odor and flavor like lemon balm. Was expecting a predominantly basil taste with a touch of lemon but didn't happen. Flowers quickly.

Review:

This is very similar to the other lemon basil I am growing, except the leaves are slightly smaller. So far, it seems to be really thriving in the heat (has been over 100), but we will see how it holds up once we hit 115.. It has a great smell and taste (almost like lemon candy!I thought it would be more hairy, but I suppose that's a good thing, since most people don't like hair in their food.I will be growing this again and again
