Lemon Herb Basil

Out of stock

The Basil Lemon, 'Ocimum basilicum citriodorum', has a strong lemon fragrance that makes this basil excellent for vinegars, salad dressing, fish dishes, and salads.

There is no more useful herb. It is a good all "around basil" and it has very few pests.

The Lemon Basil has pointed 2 inch, dull green leaves. It will display white flowers if allowed to bloom. After 4 to 6 weeks of growth, pinch top to force side growth and prevent early flowering.

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, excellent vinegar, and tastes great fresh with fish, poultry, rice, mild vegetables, eggplant and many others.

Plant 1 to 2 weeks after the last average frost date.
