Basil and Italian cooking go hand in hand. Make pesto and jazz up any pasta dish or salad with this must have staple herb. We grow many varieties - but the Bolosso Napolitano is our favourite variety. Their leaves grow as big as your hand!
New varieties for 2020/2021:
Fusarium-resistant Italian large-leaf type.
Lettuce Leaf Basil - Bolosso Napoletano
Thai Basil - O. basilicum var. thyrsiflora
Widely used throughout Southeast Asia, its flavor, described as anise- and licorice-like and slightly spicy, is more stable under high or extended cooking temperatures than that of sweet basil. Thai basil has small, narrow leaves, purple stems, and pink-purple flowers.
Spicy Globe Basil - Ocimum basilicum 'Spicy Globe'
Spicy Globe Basil has a distinctive spicy, clove and anise like flavour. It may be used just like any other basil for cooking but has especially good results with Thai and Italian dishes. The leaves are so small that there is no need to chop them up! Globe basil leaves also add a very distinctive taste to sauces and fruit desserts.
