'Pesto Perpetuo'

A basil for pesto lovers that produces leaves all Summer instead of stopping to bloom and set seeds. The flavor is very aromatic with a definite citrus edge. Additionally, the light green foliage with a cream edge is so attractive that you may grow it for its looks alone. A columnar basil growing upright to 2’, its neat habit makes it perfect for small gardens and pots. Plant in fertile garden soil and in full Sun (light afternoon shade OK). Water evenly, fertilize regularly and harvest by pinching out the growing tips to encourage bushy growth. Lucky thing:  the snails don’t like it.
