(Ocimum basilicum) Italian variety produces shiny, dark green leaves with a wonderful aroma. Large, tender leaves are ideal for making fresh tomato-basil as well as pesto. If flower stalks are kept pinched off, plants will produce right up until frost. 60 days to harvest. 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"
Shipped quickly and vigorous seedlings. have sprouted. Looking forward to fresh basil and drying some for winter.
Planted seeds and already growing! Can't wait for them to grow and use. Had received a packet of Genovese seeds elsewhere last year and and happy to see Thresh carries them so I can grow more this year. Love this kind of Basil in making fresh sauce. No such thing as too much basil either. Great service and delivery from Thresh!
Superior service, outstanding packaging. My basil will be growing and growing!! I love to make and freeze pesto. A plentiful supply of basil is a must. These seeds are just germinating and they’re beautiful! Healthy! Thank you Thresh Seed Co. Will be purchasing all of my need for seeds here!
