Lettuce Leaf Basil
Ocimum basilicum

75 days — A variety of sweet basil, 'Lettuce Leaf' produces compact, vigorous eighteen to twenty-four inch tall plants. The leaves are large, significantly larger than regular sweet basil, slightly savoyed, delivering an exceptionally mild and sweet flavor.

'Lettuce Leaf' basil is a very productive variety that produces all season long and is slow to bolt. Prefers well-drained soil, even moisture, and full sun. An annual. Each packet contains one gram, which is approximately 350 seeds.
A marvel and slow to bolt!
I'm blown away by this basil. It grows like a champion and the description does not lie, the leaves can grow as big as 6 to 7 inches! As long as you don't sow too deep and give it some space, this is the ideal basil. It recovers beautifully from a snip here and there and it doesn't bolt too fast. It tastes a bit milder than Italian or sweet basil and frankly this is preferable in my mind. Forget lettuce wraps, do basil wraps! I like the basil so much I'm buying a second packet because I'm afraid it's going to run out.
