Basil, Genovese Red Freddy
This classic, authentic, Italian sweet basil has large dark red (purple) leaves that lend excellent flavor to a wide range of dishes and pesto. Plants are slow to bolt and benefit from pinching to promote branching and higher yields. Plants require moist, well-drained soil.
