What are the pros? Flavor isn't bad. Easy to grow
What are the cons? Bland.Small leaves.
Persian basil was very easy to grow and did quite well even in the least amended part of my garden (almost no compost).I just didn't find the flavor interesting enough to give it garden space a second time. Also, the tiny leaves were much harder to strip off the stems than my standby Genovese. The ground squirrels also preferred the Genovese but thankfully didn't find it until I'd already harvested enough for the year's pesto.
