Basil (Opal)

Ocimum basilicum 'Purpurascens'

Deep purple hue with notes of basil anise and clove

A variety of basil with a deep purple hue that comes from a high concentration of anthocyanins. It has a stronger anise flavor than green sweet basil and is slightly more savory. Beautiful for plating.
