Basil - Cuban
This tender perennial basil has a nice spicy fragrance similar to spicy Greek basil.
Cuban Basil grows to about 15" tall and 2 feet wide. The leaves are small like lime basil.
It is very easy to grow and absolutely delicious.
This basil is a tender perennial but it is sensitive to cold weather and must be brought inside in the winter. This plant is generally used as a culinary annual.
Cuban basil prefers rich, well-drained soils.
Pick basil leaves when they are young for best taste. Only harvest 1/3 of a plant at a time to allow new growth without unduly stressing the plant.
