Basil, Lettuce Leaf
Leaves are Jurassic in size but pleasantly mild in flavor, making Lettuce Leaf basil incredibly versatile in the kitchen. This sweet basil is just a bit more subtle than Genovese. It is great for making gallons of pesto, tossing into fragrant salads, and perfect for making delicious “Lettuce Leaf Basil Wraps.” Productive and beautiful. Huge 6” leaves are great in size and nutritious, containing vitamin A and minerals such as calcium, magnesium, and potassium!
