Many chefs use Basil Genovese Jumbo (Ocimum basilicum) interchangeably considered sweet basil! She has her distinctive taste that marries well with anything remotely Italian. Try her in pestos, tomato sauces, pasta, or a salad. The sweet aroma that hints of mint and anise will have you singing in the kitchen! Add one plant per one foot of garden space and expect her to grow 2-3 feet tall and 2 feet wide. Three plants will feed one person during the growing season.
