Lime Basil is an annual culinary herb that smells and tastes like - you guessed it - LIME!
Very easy to grow from seed. You can start your plants indoors 6 weeks before last frost or direct sow after all danger of frost has passed. These plants grow to 1 foot tall or less, so make perfect container plants for patios, decks, or kitchen window gardens.
Lime Basil are members of the mint family. Culinary uses: Lime Basil is best used fresh. Pinch off a few leaves and add to your favorite foods. This is great in pasta and would make a unique pesto.
One pack contains a minimum of 30 fresh, viable seed. This seed was Peacefully Homegrown in USDA Zone 7b, using organic methods, for the 2013 gardening season.
SAVE YOUR OWN SEED: Let flowers completely dry on plant. At this point cut off the dried flower stalks and roll between your hands to remove the seed. Do this over a plate to catch the seed. Store in a cool dry place and plant the following season. Properly dried and stored basil seed can n remain viable for 5 or more years.
