Basil - Blue Spice

A SUPER FRAGRANT VARIETY! (O. americanum) Vigorous plant with dense spikes of light purple flowers enclosed in showy deep purple bracts, making for an especially fine appearance in pots or in the garden. Heavy fragrance with spicy vanilla overtones that makes a pleasant contribution to both fruit salads and savory dishes. The most fragrant basil.

As a first time gardener I needed something to give me confidence and this was IT! I saw a video where they mentioned this and how fragrant it was and it IS! Very pretty plant and when I sit outside and the wind blows I can smell it. Thank you for offering such an amazing plant!!

What are the pros? Very Easy to Grow

What are the cons? I Can't Find the Vanilla

Review:

Of all the basils I have ever grown, this one the easiest and most enthusiastic. I first planted it because I heard it had vanilla overtones, so I thought about all the amazing possibilities a vanilla basil would have. Sadly, I have never been able to isolate any true hint of vanilla. So, what's wrong with me. This is a beautiful basil that will make you feel like a master gardener.

What are the pros? Sweet complex scent.

What are the cons? Fresch scent overpowering

Review:

This basil was a surprise. Slow to take off, small, but so strongly scented you smell it just walking past the garden. The fresh scent is a bit overpowering, but it made a delicious liquer, sweet, with no sugar added. I am also making vinegar out of it, and the aroma is good! If it is not tasty on salads, will use it as a final hairwash to scent the hair! Bees adore it! Wonder how the honey will taste. Will plant lots near the hive next year...

Review:

At first, I wasn't so sure about this blue spice basil.. I've gotten flavor/scent comparisons along the lines of minty, bubblegum, turpentine, vanilla, lavender marshmallow spice. Initially, I tried it in a bunch of culinary uses, but wasn't super fond of most. Dried, the flavor really mellows out to a nice tea that I now get a lot of requests for. The plants get huge. Bees love the flowers & we also use them in bouquets.
