* Height: 16 - 21 inches
* It is originating from Italy and has extra large, lettuce leaves. The flavor is similar to, but stronger than the flavor of Genovese basil.
* Loves full-sun and regular water. It is easily grown in a small pot and can be grown indoors on a sunny windowsill. Pinch it back early and often to encourage bushiness. Do not let it flower unless you want to let it set seed as this destroys the flavor and shortens the lifespan of the plant.
* Basil tea is also good for stomach cramps and vomiting.
