Basil Plant Start

$4.00

Multi-harvest Genovese basil that resists downy mildew and fungi.

Great for bunching and tip harvest. Our basil has glossy, deep green leaves that are 3" long and beautifully cupped. A semi-compact plant with medium-length internodes.

Harvesting/Pitching tip: To get the basil to bush out, cut the stem right above a set of leaves.
Stems should be pinched before flowers appears. When the basil started to flower, the flavor becomes bitter. This will cause the basil to branch out and become bushy.
