Extra-large, tender dark fragrant green leaves. Sweet Basil-Genovese produces one of the most pungent aromas of all the Basil varieties on heavy yields of large dark green glossy leaves. A wonderful variety to eat fresh or cut and allowed to dry for stored use. Fresh cuttings keep well and may even root when kept in a small container of water on a semi sunny indoor window sill. A great choice for pesto, pizza, sauces, or in any dish where the savory aromatic flavor of Basil is desired. Grows best in full sun and to a height of 18-36 inches. This Basil variety is one of our all-time favorites!
