There is nothing like the aroma of basil in the summer! Genovese basil has a particularly strong fragrance and flavor, making it excellent for almost any basil dish, especially pesto. Edible flowers are tasty in salads. There is no more useful herb. In a warm, sunny window, basil can grow indoors in the winter! A good container variety.
