Seed Saving: Beginners
Lemon Basil (Ocimum basilicum)
Lemon Basil (Ocimum basilicum): a wonderful variety with fresh flavour, very similar to lemon. It fills balconies and gardens with a new, rich fragrance, and dishes with lots of flavour nuances, perfect for summer meals! It is suitable for ground and pot cultivation, as any other basil, it is recommended to trim the flowers so there is a greater production of leaves, and a more intense flavour. However, in order to get the seeds, it is important to keep some of the flowers on the plant. If kept at the right temperature, the plant can be kept for many seasons.
