Dolce Fresca Basil gives us everything we want - big, sweet, glossy leaves, vigorous growing ability that is slow to flower, and a compact growth habit that doesn't exceed 12 to 14 inches. Its sweet fragrance and taste will take your pesto dishes to the next level. A clean, compact mounding form makes Dolce Fresca your new favorite basil to keep close on the patio or kitchen counter.
