How to cook basil

Loses its flavour rapidly when cooked, so best eaten raw, added to dishes right at the end of cooking or make your own pesto. Wash before eating.


Grows well in a greenhouse or sunny windowsill from May to September - loves dry heat and a lot of light. After trying many different types, we reckon the bog-standard sweet Genovese basil is best for most purposes

Country of origin

Grown in the United Kingdom.
