A big bag of aromatic organic basil, enough to make your own pesto – beats the stuff in jars, hands down. Pesto aside, use basil in sauces and salads (hard to better with ripe tomatoes and creamy mozzarella), or add to dishes to lend fragrant freshness at the end of cooking. Summer on a plate.

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.

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.
