Herb's Basil 'Lettuce' x 1 Sown

Plant: Basil (Ocimum basilicum) | Variety: Napolitano

Just for something different, to add a bit of variety. Will be an excellent addition to salads. Looking forward to trying it as I have never grown or eaten this herb before.

    Thanks Nic. It tastes just like normal basil but a little bit milder. Haven’t had it in a salad yet though, that’ll be the ultimate taste test.
