Basil, Sweet Genovese

Botanical Name: Ocimum basilicum 'Sweet Genovese'

Expect 1 pound of leaves per plant on this, the most “basilly” of sweet basils, in our opinion. We refer to as it as “The Pesto Basil.” As usual, you need to keep white flowers pinched off, but use them. The flowers are even sweeter than the great tasting leaves.
