cooking

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.

Varieties/season

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

More info

Basil develops a harsh flavour if you let it flower and the plant will not fully recover even after removing the flower

Country of origin
