We originally grew this basil as a seed contract for a larger seed company and fell in love with it. Dark purple leaves are large and slightly ruffled. The taste is comparable to sweet basil with a bit of a sharper bite. We find that it makes a great pesto on its own or combined with sweet basil. If you let it go to seed you'll be blessed by a multitude of labiate lavender flowers borne on upright stalks. Annual.
