Giant Basil (Ocimum basilicum)

  • Giant Neapolitan Basil (Ocimum basilicum): Giant variety of Italian basil, from Naples, the leaves reach 10 cm, while its properties and taste remain intact, typical of the "lettuceleaf"​ ​or "bullous" basil​ which differs from Genoese because of the hint of mint.

    Allow some plants to bloom in order to save the seeds, while trimming the others -cut the inflorescences (tops)- to increase the scent and production of the leaves for consumption.
