Product Description

This herb is incredibly versatile! It features a lovely basil taste, but with a bright lemon flavor that makes it perfect for using fresh or dried over seafood, pasta, and salad recipes. With ample production, you'll have plenty to dry for later use. Its bright green leaves are slightly more yellow than traditional basil, and when you lean in, you'll discover a deliciously fragrant aroma. Plant in well-drained organic soil in full sunlight. Once you harvest them, transfer to our Herb Keeper to give Lemon Basil the water it needs to keep it tasting fresh and delicious. Annual. 60 days to maturity.
