Basil 'Dark Opal' - Herbs and Veges


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.

These are beautiful bushy large plants ready now :-)
