Review:

What a great Genovese type basil! I started some indoors, then transferred to containers outdoors and started other seeds directly outdoors. It has produced beautiful masses of basil leaves, which I have used for pesto, pasta sauce and to make caprese. This is a hardy and great plant.

Review:

This stuff is crazy! This year I started cinnamon basil, then 1-2 months later started Emily and A Mammolo. This is by far the most quickly growing and healthiest looking, even though it got a much later start than the cinnamon. Highly impressed. Will be starting just this one from here out.

Review:

It’s my first year doing heirloom basil and I absolutely love these. They smell amazing and have been thriving in my window ceil. Basil doesn’t like cold so my plants outside aren’t as quick as it’s still a bit chilly but I’m counting the days till it’s warm enough to have a giant supply of basil. Was pleasantly surprised to find basil in the shops a bit smaller than my window basil, rare I can get ahead of the gardening stores. Germination is really good too.

Review:

I've been growing this for years, but am now giving a review. This has a lovely, spicy, basil flavor that is great for Italian dishes. It's a bit punchy on its own for pesto, but 1/3 of this with 2/3 milder sweet basil makes great pesto. It's easy to grow, keeps its flavor nicely for many months when frozen in olive oil (a zip lock bag, toss in leaves, coat with oil, then freeze). I've never dried it, but will try that this year, too. Doesn't require much care, loves the warmer temps of summer, and doesn't require much water. Watch out for Japanese Beetles, however: they seem to like Italian food! You HAVE to try this one, it's amazing.

Thrives in the heat

What are the pros? compact, good flavor

What are the cons? Not vigorous at first

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...
