HEIRLOOM Exquisitely flavorful and aromatic, deep green basil leaves blush burgundy, delectable as pesto and fragrant in imaginative bouquets. We are so grateful for a friend sharing this family heirloom seed with us, hoping these seeds and stories wouldn’t be lost to the next generation, and now you are a part of the story, as well ~

Similar to classic Genovese basil but more compact, Organic Gaeta Basil is easy to grow in gardens, raised beds and containers, their delicious leaves of Genovese abound on glossy 18″ plants. It’s hard to have too much basil in our lives, especially when they’re this beautiful!

    I am so glad anyone can get this basil now. It’s super sweet and the only basil my 5 year old eats straight up. I hope you all enjoy 😊 My husbands Nonno would be so proud that this plant seed is not lost and out there for anyone to grow. Thank you Petra for offering this through Fruition 💚
