Cinnamon Basil Plant

Cinnamon Basil | Certified Organic by Ecocert Canada
Ocimum basilicum | Annual | Open Pollinated | Heirloom

Cinnamon basil from Mexico. Growth habit is similar to that of regular sweet basil, with a distinctive cinnamon taste and odour. Mexicans like to place a vase of fresh cut herb on the dinner table to ward off insects. Curiously, they do not seem to use it much in cuisine, despite its superb flavour. Deserves experimentation!
Harvesting tip: Pinch leaves as needed and encourages the plant to produce more. Flower impacts flavour so, harvest before. Encourage second-growth by cutting down 6” above ground.

Storage tip: Store at 0°C unwashed as washing turns them brown.
