Basils are loaded with volatile oils, responsible for the heady aroma and strong flavour so essential to cooking. The composition of oils varies greatly in different basil types, thus accounting for the wide range of scents available. Large Leaf Italian basil is regarded as the essential variety for true Neapolitan cuisine, especially pesto.

Pick the extra large leaves and use fresh or dried in tomato dishes, pasta sauces, vegetables and soups. You can also use basil in the garden as a companion plant to repel aphids, mites, and tomato horn-worms.

Common name: Basil, Thai basil, sweet basil
Height: 18 to 24 inches high and 12 to 15 inches wide.
Difficulty level: Easy

Planting & Care
Genovese grows as an Annual and is a Herb. Being an Annual, it tends to grow best over the course of a single year. Genovese is known for growing with a forb-like habit to a height of approximately 45.0 cm (that s 1.46 feet in imperial). Italy is believed to be where Genovese originates from.

Genovese Basil is normally fairly low maintenance and quite easy to grow, as long as a level of basic care is provided throughout the year. Being aware of the basic soil, sun and water preferences will result in a happier and healthier plant.

  • Basil does well in any good garden loam.

Harvesting: Limited harvesting of the leaves can start on young plants and as they get larger, individual leaves as well as tips of the plants can be harvested. Pinching the tips of stems encourages a bushy plant and more leaf growth resulting in a round plant full of aromatic basil. Basil flower buds should be removed by pinching as soon as you see them form. Leaving them on the plant will affect the flavour of the leaves.
