Basil Genovese

Basil Genovese is probably the best variety for pesto! Plants are strong producers of dark green, glossy leaves with a characteristic spoon shape, exceptionally tender texture and distinctive sweet flavour excellent in sauces and cooking. 25-30 cm tall plants. Ensure you keep pinching the leaves from the top to encourage a bushy plant.

Temperate: SEPT – FEB

Sub – Tropical: AUG – MAR

Tropical: ALL YEAR (bonus)

  • Cut back to twin leaf as two new leaves will regrow for bushy plant
