Dark Purple Opal Basil
Purple Opal's leaves have a sweet, anise-like flavor. The beautiful foliage and lavender flowers of this plant also make a wonderful addition to any garden.
Very uniform, purple Italian strain. A beautiful (sweet) and ornamental variety. Spectacular as a garnish, in salads, or for adding color to basil vinegars.
Contains approx. 35 heirloom seeds.
Tip: Sow seeds outdoors when soil is warm and temperature does not drop below 65°F. Can also be started indoors 4-6 weeks before planting out. Make successive sowings for continuous summer supplies. Pinch back flower stalks as they appear to keep plants from bolting. Prefers rich well-drained soil.
