Description

HEIRLOOM The essence of summer, pesto lovers unanimously hail Genovese the sweetest of all basils and we agree! Easy to grow in gardens, raised beds and containers, the deep green leaves of Genovese abound on glossy 2′ plants. We find it hard to have too much basil in our lives!

At Fruition, we sow Genovese basil seeds in soil blocks about four weeks before final frost and succession sowing each month until two months before frost to enjoy fresh basil all season and as frozen pesto all winter.
