African Spice™ Basil
(hardy in zones 11+)
Sweet and spicy!
Imagine a blend of spices and florals, with a hint of citrus. That’s what the scent and flavour of this variety are like. Delicious in pestos, salads, soups, drinks, tea, etc. Grows like lemon basil (
) with similar smallish, smooth leaves, small white flowerspikes, and short stature. We found this growing on the coastal savanna of West Africa in 2007 and it has since done well in pots in our greenhouses. Ht. 30cm/12".
