Basil
Basil is in global demand as a key ingredient in many ethnic cuisines, and one of Johnny's most popular herbs. We offer a line of basil varieties featuring diverse flavors, colors, and disease-resistance packages, for culture from seed or organic vegetative herb plugs. All our basil seed lots are lab-tested to confirm the absence of seedborne fusarium. Some varieties are also grown ornamentally or for use as cut flowers. To compare days-to-harvest, heights, seed types, and growing options, see our Basil Varieties Comparison Chart.
