Red Leaf Basil
Ocimum basilicum

70 days — A variety of sweet basil, 'Red Leaf' produces compact, vigorous, eighteen to twenty-four inch tall plants that are a beautiful deep, magenta color from the stems to the leaves. It is very productive throughout the season and is slow to bolt.

It can be interchanged in any recipe calling for common basil adding an interesting color variation. Prefers well-drained soil, even moisture, and full sun.

An annual. Each packet contains one gram, which is approximately 460 seeds.
Unexpected Winner
This basil was grown as somewhat of a novelty, but it quickly became a staple in my 2018 summer meals. Its flavor is slightly different from the standard basil, but good all by itself. I particularly enjoyed combining it with my Dwarf Greek Basil for most of my cooking needs. The plant reached about eighteen inches tall before starting to flower.
