This is one of our family's favorite basil to grow. An Italian heirlom that makes abundant quantities of plump, dark green leaves, extremely tender and fragrant. Perfect for all baking needs, especially good in pesto. Plants are well behaved and grow 24 to 30 inches tall.

If we could only grow one basil, it would probably be this one.

Each packet contains 1 gram, which is approximately 890 seeds.
