Beautiful, aromatic organic basil can transform any dish into summer on a plate. Use these succulent leaves in sauces and salads (hard to better with ripe tomatoes and creamy mozzarella), or add to dishes at the end of cooking. It’s a delicate herb, so handle with care – slice the leaves with a very sharp knife or tear with your hands.

Cooking

Loses its flavour rapidly when cooked, so best eaten raw or added to dishes right at the end of cooking.

Storage

Wash before eating.

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

Country of origin

Produced in the United Kingdom.
