Basil - Greek Mini
The Basil Greek Mini Yevani, 'Ocimum basilicum minimum', is a basil lover's treat. Yevani has a strong, spicy basil flavor that is a compliment to any tomato dish. The small mounding plant is excellent for containers. This small-leaved, 12 inch diameter, 6 inch tall mounded basil doesn't give anything to other basils in flavor. It has a very strong basil taste and fragrance that makes "a little go a long way". Yevani basil is an excellent border plant..
Basil is used in so many foods, it is hard to mention them all. It is used in Italian foods and pesto and pasta sauces. Fresh basil makes a nice tea, an excellent vinegar, and tastes great fresh with fish. Plant 1 to 2 weeks after the last average frost date. Place the Basil seeds in well drained soil with lots of organic matter.
