Productive, compact, and slow bolting.
Intermediate resistance to Fusarium. 2-3″ long, glossy and cupped leaves with classic Genovese basil aroma. Best for live plant or pot production and leaf/tip harvest. This very compact plant, with short spaces between leaves and branches, produces high yields of leaves and leaf tips. Harvesting for bunches is not recommended as extremely dense plants and short internodes make bunching difficult. Recommended seeding rate for containers: 2-5 seeds per 4″ pot. Slower to flower than other varieties by up to 8 weeks. We’ve observed 5–10% of plants flower at the same time as standard basil varieties. Ht. 16–24″
Seed per packet: 1
