Best basil for pesto

By: Gwendolyn Soper    (Sep 6, 2010)

I bought this variety of basil years ago. It was called Basil Neapolitana, a.k.a. lettuce leaf basil. It was my favorite plant all summer long to nurture and harvest. I planted about 12 plants in two large pots on my driveway. They received southwest sunlight. Early on I pinched back the plants after they were established which encouraged them to branch out. I was able to make and freeze about 20 pints of pesto, PLUS distribute bags of basil to family and friends. Highly recommended variety of basil.
