CERTIFIED ORGANIC. Ocimum basilicum. This attractive basil has purple stems and deep flowers with purple bracts. Its unique cinnamon taste and aroma makes it wonderful for tea/vinegars or even for use ornamentally in edible or scented decorative arrangements. Basil flowers are also edible so add them to your dishes too! Basil makes sensational microgreens too - they take a little longer to germinate but are worth the wait for the gourmet flavour.

    • Beautiful basil with distinctive colour and flavour
    • Great choice for pesto, teas and vinegars
    • Use the flowers in salads
