(Ocimum basilicum) Heirloom strain from New Mexico. Intense citrus
aroma, popular for vinegars and seafood dishes.
Plants are 12-18" tall with a neat habit, small green
leaves, and white flowers. Dries nicely. The finest
strain of lemon basil available. Annual.
Green Thumb Tip Sow seeds outdoors when soil is warm and
temperature does not drop below 65°F. Can also be
started indoors 4-6 weeks before planting out. Make
successive sowings for continuous summer supplies.
Pinch back flower stalks as they appear to keep
plants from bolting. Prefers rich well-drained soil.
