Genovese Basil (Ocimum basilicum)

Out of Stock
  • This variety is the one used for the “pesto alla genovese “. It distinguishes itself from other cultivars because of the smaller leaves, oval-convex shape, pale-green color, and delicate aroma.

    It can be planted all year round, preferring spring and a protected environment in winter. It can also be grown in pots.

    The Genovese Basil in Liguria has had a PDO denomination for more than 10 years.

  • This plant is originally from India, already known by ancient Egyptians who considered it sacred. It was also known and appreciated by the ancient Romans; it often appears in the texts of Pliny the Elder.
