Lemon basil (Ocimum americanum var. citriodorum), which stems from South East Asia and Australia, has a markedly noble lemon flavour with slight camphor, cinnamon, and lavender touch. It's perfectly suitable for sweet dishes and for garnishing desserts.
But also as a spice for salads, for herbal sauces, or delicious pesto, it's well usable.

The large leaves grow on the near-ground end of the thick stalk while the upper part enormously shoots up later in the season and bears plenty of white or lavender-coloured blossoms. Therefore, it's also a good decorative and honey plant.

  • Sowing indoors in pots from mid-March or directly outdoors from mid-May. Basil seeds need light to germinate. Therefore, only scatter the seeds on the moist soil and press them onto it gently.
  • The plant is very frost-sensitive and, therefore, only annual in our climate zone.
  • This variety reaches approx. 20-30cm in height.
  • Prefers warm, humous-rich, loose, sandy soils and sunny locations. Doesn't like windy locations.
  • Family: Lamiaceae (mint family)
