Basil ‘Italian’

Ocimum ‘Italian’

Also known as ‘Large Leaf Italian’ basil, ‘Sweet Basil’ is native to Europe where it has been cultivated for centuries as a fresh and dried culinary herb. It has been a common plant in American kitchen gardens since the late 1700s. The leaves are used fresh to make pesto and can be dried and used as a seasoning. Basil is also a fantastic natural mosquito and pest repellent and its blooms are great for attracting helpful pollinators to your garden.
