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!

Additional info:
Lemon Basil sprouts quickly, in 5-6 days. The first leaves grow in a few weeks. Growth accelerates about a month after sowing. It is advisable to start cutting basil early. When the plant is about 4-8 cm high, cut the top pair of leaves. 

From then on, harvest by cutting the stem just above the pair of leaves below. This will encourage new branches and thicker growth, producing more leaves to harvest. It’s possible to cut a lot of basil in one go, so long as you always leave at least one or two pairs of leaves on the plant. If basil grows too tall, it can be cut at the middle, or even lower.

    Amazing lemon perfume!
    I use it for warm infusion but I also tried to bake cookies as you suggested in the Facebook group 🙂
