You will make perfect pesto every time with this very popular basil variety! There is a very spicy taste just waiting to get out of the large, 5 cm (2") long, luscious looking dark green leaves. This variety is quite slow to bolt. Annual

600 seeds/gram Do not rush planting as Basil loves warm soil and warm temperatures - they will languish if temperatures are below 15 C (60 F). Sow seed directly outdoors in a sunny site with average soil in late May and June. Plant seed 4 mm (3/16") deep and 6 mm (1/4") apart. Thin to 25-30 cm (10-12") apart in the garden. Seed can also be started indoors in a soil-less mix 4-6 weeks before last frost date. Keep temperature at 21 C (70 F) for the 7-10 day germination period, then grow on at the same temperature before hardening off and transplanting outside after the danger of all frost has passed.
