Ocimum basilicum 'Dark Opal'
Basil is sometimes called the king of herbs. This honorary title is not only tied to cooking: basil has been found in the royal burial chambers of the pyramids. Basil, with its aromatic, anised-like mildly sweet flavor and its strong clove scent, is the staple for all of us who love pesto and Caprese salad. You can also use it in pasta and risotto and throw a handful of leaves on pizzas and bruschetta. And do not dedicate this versatile herb to main dishes only! Basil and strawberries or peaches are a great match. Try cooking basil, water and sugar into a lovely syrup and sprinkle it on fruit and berries, or mix it into your favorite summer drink.
Basils grow superbly well together in Plantui and we have a large variety for you to mix and match. The regular Basil is the classic and is also known as sweet basil, the Basil Lemon has an added citrus scent and flavor, the Basil Minette has much smaller leaves but is arguably the most fragrant, the Basil Spicy gives a little more oomph, and the Basil Thai is the classic herb you find in most Thai dishes.
