Globe basil, pesto basil’s spicy little brother

Image of globe basil

Globe basil has all the flavor of its big brother Italian basil, plus most folks say it’s a little spicier.  The photo here  shows how small the leaves are; no need to chop them, just use them whole on pasta or tossed into a salad. It’s a very compact plant, too, compared to most any other basil – always goes in the Aerogarden’s front row. Recovery after harvesting is typically fast, so you can keep that fresh basil coming and coming. Grow the International Basil Seed Kit for a taste  range of  basil varieties  you won’t find in stores!
