Basil, Greek (Ocimum minimum), packet of 100 seeds, organic
Family: Mint (Lamiaceae)
Annual, with first harvest at 70 days.
A tiny hummock of a plant, resembling a Lilliputian Oak tree, but redolent with the finest of Basil aroma. Does well in pots, and fits well in pots, even small ones. The leaves are quite small but the aroma and the flavor are quite large. Very slow to bolt, which is an advantage for home growers but makes it challenging for us to produce seedcrops–we start mighty early! We vote this the best-tasting Basil of all. Traditionally in Greece, a sprig is placed behind the ear to mask unpleasant smells (like tobacco smoke) and attract women (or men).
