What are the pros? Easy to grow, lots of flowers
What are the cons? Flavor, smell
I grew some of this between some of my tomatoes this year, mostly for the bees. (I read a bunch of the reviews that mentioned how much the bees enjoyed the flowers.) It came up like a champ and was easy to grow as most basil is. I find the smell overpowering. It's not terrible (other people liked it), but to me it smells almost sickeningly sweet. It set on LOTS of flowers which is what I primarily grew it for, but the bees seemed to prefer my melon and cucumber flowers more (not that I'm complaining). I did taste the leaves just to try them out and I was not a fan. My palate prefers other basils.
