Classic Italian variety.
Authentic flavor and appearance. Tall and relatively slow to bolt with large dark-green leaves about 3″ long. This common strain of Genovese basil can present some variability in leaf shape and plant size. While quite suitable for field and garden, we recommend using a more modern and more uniform variety for greenhouse, container, or hydroponic production, such as Genovese Compact Improved, Aroma 2, Nufar, Dolly, Elidia, or Eleonora. Ht. 24-30″.
