CERTIFIED ORGANIC! Jolina organic basil seeds produce compact, bushy plants for container or open field growing. This new cross between classic Genovese basil with its Thai basil cousin has short internodes but the improved disease resistance naturally found in the Thai variety. It has traditional basil flavour and fragrance, numerous leaves, and growth that is outward and splaying. It looks really quite good in containers, and is well suited to the patio herb garden. Frequent harvesting will prolong the life of the plant. Basil leaves have the best flavour just before the plant blooms. Flowering can be delayed by pinching or clipping off new flower buds.
