  1. Jon

    Not knowing what to expect, we threw a couple rows in the garden. Had more than enough to use fresh, and made a couple pounds of pesto with what we couldn’t use!

    My favorite to grow!!! Love the smell on a cool summer day.

    Best variety of basil grown yet. Leaves are MASSIVE! Sweet basil smell/flavor. High germination rate!

    I didn’t want to get carried away so I only planted 15 seeds, and every single one sprouted! Basil for days! Thank You!

    This is my all time favorite basil and I am growing a ton of it for my family and also as girts in herb pots! This is the ultimate all around perfect basil and I love this variety so much!!

    Planted these heavily, but germination was like wildfire! The best seeds we have EVER purchased at MIGardener. We have made pesto to share, pizza, added to sauce, and so much more. Plants so hardy we shared with family. We did over harvest one plant, and it was resilient and flourish to massive plants. Beautiful! Will continue to purchase. Thank you!

    All the seeds germinated and the plants are super fragrant and flavorful. I’m really excited to use the leaves to make some fresh pesto this summer.

    Germination on these seeds were excellent, and the growth on this basil is excellent as well. I took off a star because this basil had an insane amount of insect damage. I’m not sure what is eating the leaves, but there’s hardly any leaves that are undamaged. I have three other types of basil I grew from seed (holy basil, Thai basil and dolce fresca basil) that are damage-free or of minimal damage, yet the Italian large leaf basil seem to be very popular to whatever insect is in my garden.

  13. bouncerdjwife

    Can’t believe how fast these germinated. They smell amazing and the leaves are huge. They are great with almost every meal. Make amazing dry basil and pesto. I always plant extra for family.

    Germinated and grew well, unfortunately it was killed by downy mildew later in the season

    I grow this Basil every year in a hanging basket, and also with my tomatoes here in Florida. It grows amazing every year, and out lives every other plant though the heat of summer. It also smells so good and has a great taste.

    Grow these every year. Very reliable and very good to do pesto.

  21. heatherolvera80

    Germinated rather quickly. That’s all I can say about them for now. But they seem like they’re doing pretty awesome!

    This is wonderful, keep it trimmed and you will have enough to share with the neighbors.

    What can I say… Big leaf basil is awesome for anything. It grows super fast and is so tasty in all dishes. No issues with germination
