Lime Basil Seeds, Herb Seeds Grown Organically Heirloom Untreated Open Pollinated

Lime Basil Seeds, Herb Seeds Grown Organically Heirloom Untreated Open Pollinated

Lime Basil is a bit unique for basil tastes as the leaves have a zippy, fresh lime taste and aroma. They are excellent in salads and salsas! They also are delicious fresh with tomatoes or in a pasta sauce (pesto), and dried for the winter. The plants grow to about 20 inches.

BASIL TIP: Whether you plant your herbs in containers or the garden, pinch the flower heads off as soon as you see them appearing as the flowers on basil plants toughen the leaves. Also, if you want a continuous harvest of basil throughout the summer, cut back a portion of the plant (set them aside to dry if you cannot use them immediately) and watch as the plant continues to produce more basil.
