About- While similar to its cousin, Genovese Basil, Italian Large Leaf Basil boasts a slightly less clove-like taste. This variety is sweet, with large, robust leaves making it a great choice for use in the kitchen. 

When and Where to Plant- Start seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before last frost, and transplant out when evening temps are above 45 degrees. Start seeds outdoors in late Spring when the soil temperature has warmed. Choose a warm, full sun location with rich, well-draining soil.

Care and Harvest- Basil does not need much, if any, fertilization. Be sure to keep the soil damp, but not soggy. You can start to harvest from your Basil plant when it is 6-8" tall. Harvest frequently to encourage more growth.
