Product Description

Grow Heirloom Basil - Plant Purple Basil Seeds

Purple Basil is a dark, red-leaved basil that is a wonderful addition to any herb garden. Not only is it useful for adding seasoning to Italian and tomato dishes, it's also aromatic and attractive in the garden. Purple basil can be used in any recipe that calls for sweet basil, but until you have tried it, it is best to use slightly less purple basil - the flavor is more intense than traditional sweet basil.

The basil seeds seem to have a very good germination rate. I have lots of babies on my window sill! Shipping was very fast. I appreciate your service.
