Spicy flavor. Mexican variety with a distinct cinnamon-like taste.
Grows quickly and makes for an attractive basil plant. Attract bees so you’ll have good pollinators. Very fragrant. Makes the whole yard smell great. Best of all is the flavor–a complex spicy basil taste that goes great in soups, salads, pasta, pesto.
A handful in a smoothie is delightful. The flavors really came through when added to home kombucha or herbal tea.
Grown spring, summer, fall when temps are above 50 degrees at night and prefers 70 degree temps.
