Basil 'Italian Large Leaf'

0.00

Large plant with medium-dark green leaves up to 4" long. Compared to Genovese, the scent and taste are sweeter and less clove-like.

  • Days to Maturity - 78
  • Height - 24-30"
  • Spacing - 8"
  • Exposure - Sun
  • Zone - Annual

Remarks - Moderately rich, moist soil. Basil is not drought tolerant and can be damaged by heat stress. Regular moisture throughout the growing season helps to ensure a good crop.  Begin light harvesting after plants have become established. It is best done in the early morning when the temperature is cooler and the leaves are less likely to wilt. A full harvest should be completed just before the plants start to flower. Cut the entire plant 4-6" above the ground to promote a second growth. Leaves are easily bruised when picking, so handle carefully.
