Globe basil has all the flavor of its big brother Italian basil, plus most folks say it's a little spicier. The photo here shows how small the leaves are; no need to chop them, just use them whole on pasta or tossed into a salad. It's a very compact plant, too, compared to most any other basil - always goes in the Aerogarden's front row. Recovery after harvesting is typically fast, so you can keep that fresh basil coming and coming. Grow the International Basil Seed Kit for a taste range of basil varieties you won't find in stores!
