Emily Organic basil seeds are CERTIFIED ORGANIC! Emily is a fantastic new dwarf basil, a compact Genovese variety that works particularly well in containers. This basil was bred to have shorter stem lengths between nodes, and only reaches a maximum height of 30cm (12″). Emily has a longer shelf life after harvest than most basil varieties, and keeps longer in refrigeration, maintaining its fresh aroma. Emily Organic is a superb choice for farms, market growers, or the home gardener. Try some of this petite but potent gourmet basil in your home patio herb garden. Pinching out the growing tips from time to time keeps this unique basil very bushy and compact.
