Dark Opal Basil

250 Seeds

$ 2.79

(Ocimum basilicum) This basil is stunningly beautiful.  Plants produce dark purple leaves with an amazing aroma and flavor.  We like to blend them with olive oil, parmesan, garlic, and toasted pine nuts to make a unique, lavender colored pesto that turns green once added to hot pasta.  Plants are healthy and slow to bolt.  I let them stand in the garden even after they've bolted because the honeybees love them and their little golden bodies are pretty against the dark purple foliage.  Plus, I figure one of my neighbors is getting some really delicious honey.  60 days to maturity.  Approx. 250 seeds/pkt.

CULTURE: After danger of frost has passed, sow seeds 1" apart, 1/4" deep in rows 18-24" apart. Under ideal conditions, germination will occur in 5-10 days. After germination, thin to one plant every 4-8"
