An absolutely legendary heirloom that no Italian chef can cook without. Genovese basil is the essential ingredient in basil pesto, but it’s also phenomenal in sauces, on pizzas, and in any other recipe calling for basil. 

Sweet Thai

Popular sweet, spicy basil that is essential in Thai cuisine. Very flavorful, with a nice licorice taste. 

Deep Purple

Beautiful, fragrant, and tasty purple foliage makes this basil both gourmet and ornamental. Makes very ugly brown pesto - don't do it. 



Kapoor Tulsi (Holy)

A superior strain of Tulsi or Sacred basil, with a more compact growth habit and more pungent sweet flavor. Native to India and used in Indian and Thai cuisine. Spicier than other basils and quicker to go to seed, but still usable when covered with purple flowers. Used in Ayurvedic medicine as a poultice on acne, ringworm, eczema and insect bites. Makes a tasty tea.
