Cinnamon Basil
Ocimum basilicum
Uses: Culinary/Medicinal/Beverage/Aromatic/Industrial Duration: Annual
When to Sow: Spring/Anytime Ease of Germination: Easy
From Mexico. Growth habit is similar to that of regular sweet basil, with a distinctive cinnamon taste and odour. Mexicans like to place a vase of fresh cut herb on the dinner table to ward off insects. Curiously, they do not seem to use it much in cuisine, despite its superb flavour. Deserves experimentation!
