Though slow to germinate, all seeds planted came up. They recently withstood a few chilly nights (34 degrees) without being covered or brought inside, which was nice as I was out of town, whoops. Still only halfway to maturity, but already tasting great. Can't wait to put in some homemade Pho and Basil and Lime sorbet. Really tangy flavor. Growing in a pot on my patio. I'd recommend.

Love it....
This basil grows almost anywhere. It has a very citrusy smell and flavor that over powers the basil. I use it in merinaides and alcoholic beverages. I wouldn't suggest it if you are looking for a majority basil flavor profile. The really nice thing is if you have some patients the seeds are really easy to harvest for next year's garden.
