Basil, Chinese Sweet

89% of 100

A flavorful, citrusy variety that is perhaps the most tender and aromatic basil we’ve tried! This fast growing, heat-tolerant basil provides lemony orange-flavored foliage all summer long. The leaves are smooth in texture, and even the stem is tender enough for raw eating in salad. A popular Chinese variety perfect for Asian dishes and fusion cooking! This delicious herb is hard to find in America.
