Basil Dark

Ocimum basilicum ‘Dark Opal’

Basil variety with beautiful dark, purple leaves. 

Dark basil has beautiful, glossy leaves that are almost regal in colour, and the shade becomes even deeper as the plant grows. A few leaves of dark basil in homemade vinaigrette give the dressing a lovely ruby hue.

Basil Lemon

Ocimum basilicum  Lemon

Basil with a soft hint of lemon. 

In addition to dishes that call for a lemon flavour such as fish and pasta, try fresh lemon basil in fruit salads and other desserts. Lemon basil also tastes great in drinks!

Basil Minette

Ocimum basilicum - 'Minette’

The leaves of this bushy variety of basil might be small but don’t let that fool you: this little guy brings some big taste! 

Basil Minette can be used like regular basil. The taste is intense and has a slight hint of aniseed. The pretty little leaves of Minette make it ideal for garnishing.

Basil Spicy

Ocimum basilicum  Spicy

Extra strong basil! 

The strength of spicy basil means a small amount is all that’s needed. However, feel free to be liberal and bold when using this perky little member of the basil family.

Basil Thai

Ocimum basilicum  Thai

This basil has a sweet and warm flavour with hints of aniseed and liquorice. 

Thai basil tastes sweeter and warmer than regular basil. In addition to aniseed and liquorice, some describe the taste as peppery and cinnamon-like. Creative chefs are particularly fond of Thai basil and with its gorgeous, dark green, fragrant leaves, it’s especially beautiful. Thai basil is more resistant to heat than regular basil, making it a great spice for soups and sauces.  

If you want to try something really different, slip some Thai basil leaves inside your wallet - it is said to bring good fortune!

    So nice to try all these different Basils! I didn’t know them, so similar but also so different. Minette is now a standard in my Plantui garden!
