Description Delivery Information
A traditional Italian variety to use fresh, in vinegars and as the main ingredient for pesto. This very popular and heavy-yielding variety produces large aromatic leaves that delight the taste buds as well as the nose. Leaves are deep green and slightly cupped. Average height is 10-12”. Days to maturity: 65 days
Basil is a heat-loving plant best grown in full sun. To get the best harvest, basil likes:
  • Soil pH: 5.5 - 6.5
  • Well-drained, fertile soil
  • Full sun
  • Daytime temperatures: 80-900 F; nightime temperatures: 60-750 F
  • Pinch off flower buds to promote more leaf growth
  • Do not overfertilize; this will decrease the essential in the leaves
  • Harvest in the morning after the dew has dried
  • Avoid overhead irrigation
