Basil Genovese seeds

7,00

Genovese Basil is perhaps the most famous sweet basil variety in the world. Known for its use in pesto, the best Genovese Basil is said to be grown in western Genoa, Italy. So, why is Genovese Basil so special? Its round leaves are dark green and appear more matte than those of its shinier cousin, Common Basil. The taste is also more ‘matte’, if that makes sense – the basil flavour is more concentrated and is somehow less sweet. What is certain is that Genoese people take their beloved baxaicò (as they call it) and their pesto very seriously; Genovese Basil has even gained DOP (Protected Designation of Origin) status from the Italian Government.

The package contains 120 seeds. Indoor sowing: February-March, outdoor sowing: April-June. Put it in a bright or semi-shaded place. Attracts bees and butterflies. For consumption, its leaves can be pinched continuously, in which case it can be kept for a long time in a small glass of water in a cool, dark place. Basil stimulates the appetite and improves the mood, it can be used to make pesto or herbal tea.
