“Nufar Basil is a type of sweet basil. This variety boasts large, flavorful leaves and is resistant to fusarium wilt. The flavor is very similar to that of Genovese – a slightly anise/licorice flavor, peppery, yet minty too. The leaves are large and with proper pinching the plant will yield more than you will know what to do with. Because of its large leaves and great flavor, Nufar is also perfect for Pesto.
