Basil 'Dark Opal' - Herbs and Veges

We use Aramax couriers for all our deliveries and they are currently taking too long to deliver our plants. We wll not be dispatching any more orders until the new year when they are back to normal.

Please read our condtions of sale here. We go to great lengths to pack our plants well for transport but sometimes couriers can still damage them or leave them without light and water for far too long. In this case we are sorry but we cannot be responsible for thier mistakes. If you have lost or damaged plants please lodge a claim with them here.  You can arrange for a pick upin Kumeu from here. And if you know of a fantastic courier service that will travel to rural places within NZ we would love to hear from them. Please tell us your amazing story here!

Basil 'Dark Opal'
The deep purple glossy leaves of Opal basil are egg-shaped and sparsely toothed along the edges. The hybrid basil variety has a stronger spicy, anise flavor than the common green sweet basil.
Opal basil leaves make aromatic herbed vinegars or oils. Make a purple pesto or use the leaves as a garnish for salads or pizza. Opal basil can replace green varieties in caprese salads. This purple basil can be used fresh or dry; it can also be frozen for future use or used to infuse oil. Opal basil can lend flavor and color to many culinary pairings, including Thai, Vietnamese, and Italian.
