What are the pros? Wonderful plant!
What are the cons? No dislikes
This is the first time I grew the Greek Basil. It was amazing! I grew it hydroponically among some other herbs. This basil was 9 to 10" tall, so full that it almost formed a globe. Leaves were in perfect shape with no noticeable pests munching anywhere. I harvested it over Memorial Day Weekend and made pesto. The one plant produced 4 packed cups of basil leaves and top stems. Just after a few days, it's hard at work growing more stems and leaves. I added a few basil leaves from a different variety and what I noticed was that the Greek Basil top stems were very tender and the other basil stems were very woody. To me, you're able to use more of the plant in your food preparation. Flavor of this basil was mellow and full of sweet basil aroma, a wonderful flavor. Other varieties of basil have a sharp taste and stronger aroma. By far, this was one of the best pesto's I've ever had. I look forward to growing this many more times.
