Lime Basil Plant

Lime Basil | Certified Organic by Ecocert Canada
Ocimum basilicum | Annual | Heirloom

Annual. A zesty and refreshing basil variety with distinct lime fragrance and flavor. Wildly attractive to pollinators, the fragrant foliage is a delightful addition to the herb garden, containers, beds and borders. A few sprigs of lime basil tucked into a floral arrangement brings forth a burst of scent. Famous in Thai food and other Southeast Asian dishes. An excellent tea herb, it is also incredible when made into a simple syrup — so much fun in fusion cuisine, drinks and desserts!

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.
