Basil Seeds

No kitchen is complete without basil! Basil is considered the premiere culinary herb. It is highly fragrant and has a bright, pungent, and peppery taste. It is most commonly used fresh in cooked recipes. Basil is a key ingredient in Italian and Thai cuisine. Here at Seed Store we offer basil in a variety of flavors to choose from. Our most popular basil is Sweet basil, which is the basil that is traditionally used in Italian food. If you want to make pesto, Genovese is widely regarded as the best basil for pesto. If you like basil with different flavors, we recommend growing Cinnamon, Lemon, or Lime. Basil grows best outdoors but can be grown indoors in a pot.
