The smell of basil is the smell of summer. Genovese basil won't
disappoint you if you are a basil lover - it has a particularly
strong fragrance and flavor making it excellent for almost any
basil dish, particularly pesto. Edible flowers are tasty in salads.
There is no more useful herb in a warm, south window, and it can be
grown indoors in winter. This is a great container variety. A
packet plants one 40-foot row.
