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.

Sow mid September to December (Cool Climate). Needs bottom heat 21C minimum if started early.

Spacing 30cm, great in pots.
