Basil - Emily

Compact version of the classic Genovese type that is superior for pot culture, having shorter stem-length between leaf nodes. Widely recognized to be longer-lasting when cut, all of which make "Emily" a better subject for market growers and home gardeners.

What are the pros? Easy to grow. Great taste!

What are the cons? Nothing!

Review:

This was very easy to grow! I had no issues and loved the flavor. I started four plants and had tons of basil all summer. It's the first week of September now and still have plenty to cut still. I plan to grow this again next year.

What are the pros? As good as Genovese

What are the cons? None

Review:

Used to grow Genovese for pesto, but switched to Emily for the compact size when I started a separate small herb bed. Flavor, color and leaf size are comparable to Genovese but plants take up less space. I used it as a cut and come again herb this year, cutting three times and each time my plants regrew nearly as tall as before, eliminating the need for large plants altogether. Perfect.

What are the pros? Produced a lot

What are the cons? Odd to start

Review:

Started in doors in April, not many were liking life. First time gardening, I lost most of them early but once summer came into full heat, they enjoyed the evening sun. I harvested two plants about 4 times and each time the branches regrew about 15 more inches. Very nice fragrance.

What are the pros? Handles heat and rain

What are the cons? Takes time to establish

Review:

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.
