What are the pros? Handles heat and rain
What are the cons? Takes time to establish
I love this basil, it performs much better than the other Italian types I have tried. It remains pretty small and stubby until the heat sets in and then it begins to bush up nicely. I transplanted into hugelbeds that remain really dry during July & August and it has held up to the blistering heat we have here in the summer. I'm trying to see which plants handle the monsoon/drought cycles that we have here and this one passes the test (so does the Greek Basil). It's a keeper.
