The most traditional Italian basil, Genovese was first bred in the Northwest coastal port of Genoa, the gateway to the Italian Riviera. It has become so prized that it is now a protected variety that holds a special label on food to prove its authenticity and origin as an ingredient, similar to Champagne. Bright green leaves have a stronger, slightly sharper flavor than Sweet Basil and are smaller and finer in size at approximately 3". Aromatic 18-24" plants are tender crops that need substantial warmth to produce.
