Plant Sweet Basil Seeds - Grow Heirloom Basil

The most popular of all the basil varieties, Sweet Basil is tasty, sweet, and can be used in just about any dish - fresh or cooked. We turn to Sweet Basil to top our tomato and mozzarella, to puree for pesto and to add to minestrone soup. Fresh or dried, Sweet Basil offers a fresh herbal taste we have come to know and love!
