Basil Large Sweet Italian - 100 Seeds

(Ocimum basilicum)

This popular variety has the largest leaves of any of the basil varieties. Plants grow 24 to 32 cm tall with large medium-dark green leaves from 2 to 4 cm long. Compared to Genovese, the scent and taste are sweeter and milder. Slow bolting matures slightly later than Genovese. 

Naturally, most people use basil for culinary purposes or as garden plants. However, basil is a good remedy for travel sickness, a very useful mouth gargle, and assistance for several other ailments. These include stomach spasms, loss of appetite, indigestion, kidney conditions, fluid retention, head colds and warts. It is thought some of the many chemicals in basil might assist in fighting intestinal worms. 

As a topical agent, basil can be used for skin ointment and its anti-bacterial properties. Used in tea, basil is said to ward off headaches, depression and tiredness. It also has value as an eyewash. 

Basil contains vitamin C, calcium and several minerals. It is useful for lowering blood sugar in some people but is not reliable in this respect. Basil also contains estragole, which can contribute to liver cancer in high amounts. 

Propagation notes will be supplied with a seed packet

Very Happy

This Summer was too hot for my capsicums, but they are thriving now. I just cut the branches back a little, and they are lush, full of flowers, and capsicums. For the Basil and Parsley we just organic fertilized the garden bed, seeds are going in, in a few days. The new Capsicum seeds we ordered, will go in the garden beds late Winter early Spring. Happy.


I have not planted them yet but I have had them in the past & they are so satisfying as a grower you walk into the garden and the awesome scent of basil fills the air it’s wonderful & the bees love them too it’s an excellent plant for them & also the salvia they visit most of the day & I love contributing back to nature as much as possible I love it 🥰🥰🥰🥰

Giant, delicious Basil

The Giant Italian Sweet Basil seeds are just another example of the large choice of seeds available.
