History Licorice Basil, part of the basil family, is known for its unique aroma and flavor that resembles licorice or anise. This variety of basil has its origins in the warm climates of Asia and is appreciated for its culinary versatility and ornamental beauty. It's a newer addition to the wide array of basil varieties cultivated worldwide, offering a unique twist on the traditional basil flavor profile.

Uses Licorice Basil is renowned for its strong licorice or anise-like flavor, making it a delightful addition to various dishes. It's particularly well-suited for Asian cuisine, herbal teas, and as a flavor enhancer in desserts. The aromatic leaves are also used in potpourris and for decorative purposes in culinary presentations. Its distinctive taste and fragrance make it a favorite among chefs and home cooks looking to add a unique flavor to their dishes.

Growth Habit and Planting Instructions Licorice Basil thrives in full sun and requires well-drained, fertile soil. To grow, sow the seeds indoors several weeks before the last frost date or directly in the garden when the soil has warmed. Plant seeds about 1/4 inch deep and keep the soil moist until germination. Once seedlings have a few sets of true leaves, thin them to allow adequate space for growth. Water the plants regularly and apply a balanced fertilizer every few weeks to promote healthy growth. Pinch back the flowering tops to encourage a bushier plant and to prolong the harvesting period.
