Product Details

Enhance any recipe with gourmet flair! Spicy and fragrant with small, bright-green leaves, Organic Lime Basil is a fresh addition to salsa, chutney, dressing, sauce or oils. Shade in hot weather and water well when dry to ensure a long-lasting, healthy crop. 60 days to maturity.

  • Zones: 3-9 annual
  • Height: 12 in - 24 inches.
  • Depth: 1/2 inch.
  • Spread: 12 in - 18 inches.
  • Sun/Shade: Full Sun, Part Shade.
  • Soil Preference: Moist, ell-drained loam soil.
  • Germination: germinates in 5 to 15 days
  • Pruning: Always cut basil by taking off the tops of the stems, about a third of the way down, to an intersection of new leaves. This will indicate to the plant to start growing the tiny new leaves into branches of more leaves. If you just pull of the leaf you want, you will get no new growth at all and your plant will start to stunt and begin making flowers. Once your plant starts this process of making flowers, if they are not trimmed off your plant will make seeds from the flowers and die soon after. So even if you are not making pesto, prune your plants regularly, store the leaves chopped up in a little olive oil in the refrigerator, and your plant will be healthier and happier.

  • Foliage: Small bright green lance-shaped leaves.
