Eleonora Italian

This variety has some resistance to downy mildew so it will last longer into the late summer and fall. Same delicious sweet flavor as Genovese basil. Do not crowd and keep in full sun.

Productive, compact, and slow-bolting plant with downy mildew and fusarium resistance. 2-3" long, glossy and cupped leaves with classic Genovese basil aroma.

BASIL


Greek Columnar Basil

Annual
A customer told me about this upright growing basil that almost never blossoms…which means you don’t have to keep cutting off blossoms to keep the plant producing leaves for all your pesto needs! Upright habit perfect for containers or borders. Grows 24-36 inches tall. Bring indoors in winter. Annual outside.

Mojito Mint

Everyone asks for this one and I’m finally going to be offering it! You can use any kind of spearmint to make a mojito, but this Cuban mojito mint is the authentic mint for making the famous drink. Pretty crinkled leaves on vigorous plants. Can be used for any other mint dish also. Perennial.
