Lettuce Leaf Basil   

Started indoors.

Great pesto variety because of its abundant yield of large, fragrant leaves. Has the largest leaf of any basil. Cultivated since the late 1800s. Slow to bolt. Flowers are edible. Sow 1-2 seeds/in. into soil when danger of frost has passed or start indoors 4-6 weeks before last frost date. Requires warm conditions. Pinch off heads to keep productive.
