Review:

I started these under lights and germination was excellent, early growth was excellent, and then the plants kind of stalled out - so much so that when gifting a basil plant to my black-thumbed sister in early June, I used a different variety because these were so puny. Now that the heat of July has hit, they are more than making up for their early puny-ness. They are strong, vigorous but compact. They also have not even attempted to flower, which is amazing because I can barely keep up with the blooms on my other varieties. I'm growing 4 in a 20 gal SmartPot with organic methods only, and I harvested a leaf as big as my hand today. The flavor is excellent and true to Genovese type. I'll be growing much more of this next year...

Would you recommend this product to a friend? Yes
