Basil
One of our most popular herbs, basil is indispensable to the market garden and the home herb garden. We offer a line of basil varieties featuring diverse flavors, colors, and disease-resistance packages. We now also carry several new downy mildew-resistant basil varieties that offer a stronger level of resistance than the first-generation varieties. All our basil seed lots are lab-tested to confirm the absence of seedborne Fusarium. Filter to view basil varieties suited for hydroponics, growing in containers, or for use in cut flower bouquets. Choose from conventional or organic seeds, as well as pelleted seed for ease of sowing. To compare days-to-harvest, heights, seed types, and growing options, see our Basil Varieties Comparison Chart.
