Lettuce Leaf basil

Ocimum basilicum
HOW TO GROW BASIL

Start indoors 6 weeks before last frost, plant out 1 week after frost. In warmer climates, directly sow in a sunny location when soil temps are above 60-65˚F, tender annual. Requires bottom heat. If evening greenhouse air temperatures dip below 50˚F, domed clear covering may be needed to initiate germination, then remove covering. Pinch branch buds to encourage further branching, leaf production and prevent bolting. Dry herb bunches by hanging from ceiling or lay on screens in a dark, dry, ventilated location. Harvest for drying at peak maturity when flowers are just beginning to appear, leaves contain the most essential oils at that time, after that oils are transferred to flowers and then to seeds. Soil pH 5.1-8.5. Hardiness zones 7-11. Annual.

Days from maturity calculated from the date of seeding. Average 22,400 seeds per ounce. There are no Federal germination standards for commercially sold herb seeds. Usual seed life 3-5 years. Isolation distance for seed saving: 150 feet.

Large 3-4” green crumpled leaf classic basil, edible flowers. Slightly sweeter than Genovese, less clove aroma. Best for the Pacific Northwest in our variety trials. Also known as Large Leafed Italian or Large Leaf Basil. Tags: Color: Green, Specialty: Deer Resistant, Season: Summer, Certification: Organic.

There are many varieties of basil. The type used in Italian food is called sweet basil (Ocimum basilicum) as opposed to Thai basil (O. basilicum thyrsiflora), lemon basil (Ocimum citriodorum) and holy basil (Ocimum tenuiflorum) which are used in Asian cooking and medicine. Ocimum is derived from the Greek word meaning to smell, like other plants in the mint family with square stems. Basil oils have potent antioxidant, antiviral, and antimicrobial properties.
