This is a classic italian basil with broad dark green leaves. These shiny leaves also provide the classic basil flavor and aroma. Be sure to cut the top set of leaves at the mid-growth stage to promote sideways growth.
Remember to pinch the top set of leaves when it gets about 12 inches tall to stop it from growing into the lights.
