What are the pros? Taste, keeps well
What are the cons? thick stems
This has wonderfully (traditionally) flavored large leaves. It does not become leggy like many basil plants I have grown. I do have to take out scissors for harvest because the stems have become very thick and' you can't just pinch them off, but this does make the plants sturdy. I've put a bit of diatomaceous earth on the plants occasionally, but have had no problems with pests. It's been a great plant and I'm making a large batch of pesto today!
