Basil, Spicy Globe

Add to wish list


Spicy Globe Basil might have small leaves, but it is big on style and flavor. A bush basil variety, so-called because it will grow in mounds of small leaves resembling a bush more than an herb plant. The leaves are shiny, slightly curled and very small...only about one-quarter inch in length. The plant will produce white flowers, sometimes with a pinkish-purple tint, in July and August.
