EarlyMaturity 4.5
 

What are the pros? Plant it and it will Grow

What are the cons? The smell can be overpowering

Review:

Easy to grow; throw it down and up it will come. The fragrance is wonderful , however quite powerful; reminds you almost of grape juice mixed with something else? Hard to explain. Bees LOVE this Blue Spice variety! We hadnt seen bees since we moved here but they were everywhere around our house and the attraction was clearly the Blue Spice basil ! Since every seed we put down came up, we truly enjoyed the dainty purple flowers and encourage anyone to use it in light EVOO and herb pasta dishes and a little in a salad does in fact add tasty dimension. Good stuff! A Keepr indeed.

What are the pros? long lasting

What are the cons? none

Review:

Compact, bushy plant. Don't be afraid if it starts flowering- it doesn't slow growth down at all. The bees love the flowers. This plant continued to grow right to the frost. The vanilla notes are quite fragrant and unique!

The Best Basil
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 1.0
 

What are the pros? Tastes amazing, best for tea

What are the cons? Flowers early and often

Review:

I grew Blue Spice, Persian and Thai Holy Kaprao this year. Blue spice is the best. It has a great taste on dishes and is even better dried in teas. The plants grew well crowded together and were easy to grow by just throwing them on the ground. My only issue is flowers and seeds way to quickly. I have to almost cut it to the grow and the new shoots just flower right away with very little growth. I have cut it back several times vs only once for the Persian. But don't let that stop you from growing it, it's a winner!

Absolutely Amazing
Easy to Grow 5.0

What are the pros? Easy to grow, prolific

What are the cons? None

Review:

This is the best basil I have ever grown! It takes very little care and is prolific. The plant is beautifully fragrant and seemed to be naturally resistant to aphids and other pests. All seeds germinated and the plants grew to be multiple feet in height and width. Butterflies and bees loved the flowers. By far my favorite plant I have grown from baker creek!

Pollinator Magnet
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 5.0
 

What are the pros? Everything but cooking

What are the cons? Not best for cooking

Review:

This is my number one bee magnet! This was my first time to grow this variety and it has been very successful. More pollinators on this than anything else in my garden. This basil was easy to start from seed and a vigorous grower. No disease problems at all. The fragrance is not a typical Italian or Thai basil type of scent. Oddly, I think it smells a bit like bubble gum and very strongly -- you don't even have to brush up against it or pick a leaf to clearly smell it. I hope to always grow this basil -- not for pesto or cooking, (the fragrance is pleasant, but not what I'm looking for for food), but because it attracts so many pollinators. I should add that it was my first basil to bloom and is still going strong. :)
