History: Italian Large Leaf Basil is a classic herb in Mediterranean cuisine, deeply rooted in Italian culinary traditions. Revered for its large, fragrant leaves, this basil variety has been a staple in kitchen gardens and dishes for centuries.

Uses: This basil variety is prized for its aromatic, large leaves, perfect for making fresh pesto, flavoring sauces, and garnishing a variety of dishes. Its robust flavor is more pronounced than that of smaller-leafed varieties, making it a favorite among chefs and home cooks.

Growth Habit & Planting Instructions: Italian Large Leaf Basil thrives in warm, sunny conditions and well-drained soil. For best results, sow seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost or directly outdoors when temperatures are consistently warm. Plant seeds 1/4 inch deep, keeping the soil moist but not waterlogged. Basil benefits from regular harvesting, which encourages bushier growth and prevents flowering, thus prolonging the leaf production season.
