An excellent new variety of red Genovese Basil with dark cupped leaves and a pleasing aroma. Plants are bred in the UK and can be grown indoors and out, with good vigour and no green ‘off-types’ otherwise common with this type of Basil. The leaves are good for adding to salads, sauces and pizzas.
Basil Crimson King will grow to a compact height of 40-50cm, good for growing all year indoors in pots and for growing outside in the summer. Leaves can be picked all year while the plants are growing, starting about 80 days from sowing.
Pack of approx 150 seeds. Sow indoors all year and grow on a sunny windowsill, or directly in the ground from late May to June. Easy to grow. Sowing instructions and a colour photo are printed on the seed packet.
