This is an unusual scented leaf basil, with a light lime flavor. The plant is a light green, with slender leaves. Grows to 16 inches, excellent for a container garden. Excellent in vinegars, fish, salads. It also makes a delicious pesto, very light flavor which is great for summer veggies and pasta. Use lime basil for drinks – try muddling some with spearmint for a great twist on a mojito.
