Basil - Red Rubin Organic (Seeds)
- GMO Free
This basil combines ornamental appeal and compact growth habit with unsurpassed spicy flavour and enticing aroma. Smooth, flat reddish-purple leaves have very little green. This variety is a must grow for lovers of flavoured vinegar and unique salads.
How to Grow
Sow seed outdoors in mid to late May, then every two weeks through August, or start them inside and transplant after the danger of frost has passed. Basil can be grown indoors on a sunny window or under lights during the winter. Indoor Basil plants are not long lived nor do they produce significantly. Indoor plants tend to be lanky and produce smaller leaves. Outdoors, Basil is a low maintenance plant and prolific - all you really need to do is provide water when necessary. Lightly feed with a general-purpose fertilizer as too much can adversely affect the production of the essential oils responsible for flavour and aroma. Basil plants are grown for their leaves and flower clusters.
