Genovese Basil Plant


Fragrant, fast-growing annual herb that is a must have in the kitchen, ‘Genovese’ basil is an easily cultivated and rewarding herb. It’s the traditional Italian herb used to create the very best pesto. This preferred variety has large, sweet leaves, is slow to bolt in extreme heat, and does not become bitter with age. It’s also a popular companion plant for vegetables and often used for its pest-repellent or flavor-enhancing properties with plants such as tomatoes, peppers, and root veggies like carrots.
