Zanzico Basil
Ocimum 'Zanzico'
Uses: Culinary/Aromatic Duration: Perennial (hardy in zones 11+)
When to Sow: Spring/Anytime Ease of Germination: Easy
Beautiful basil with an unusual parentage. It has traits of traditional Italian basils mixed with the fruity sweetness of basils from Zanzibar, in East Africa. The wrinkled leaves get quite large, up to 10 cm (4") long, with a slightly bronzed look, and are topped with a serving of lovely bright lilac flowers. The ornamental effect alone is impressive, but the unique fragrance and taste really stand this variety apart. Try it in tea, in cooking and even in fragrant flower arrangements.
