Plant Information
From soups to salads, pizzas to pastas, burgers to bagels, and oh-so much more, Sweet Basil really is the best when it comes to making just about everything more flavorful or fancy. Used as a garnish or direct ingredient, Sweet Basil is often referred to by chefs as "the king of herbs." That's because long ago it was preferred by English royalty, not only for culinary uses but for medicinal and cosmetic purposes as well. Sweet Basil is a member of the mint family and is incredibly easy to grow, but it does love the heat of summer so be patient while it waits to sprout. Once it does, its leaves can be picked and used at any time and can also be frozen for use year-round.
