Description

Basil - Lime - Ocimum americanum

Annual Heirloom. Lime flavor mixed with basil makes this an irresistible herb. Use the 2" green leaves with chicken, fish, salads, and iced tea whenever you want a citrus spark. Substitutes for lemongrass in Asian recipes. Enjoy this distinctive flavor fresh all summer then dried or frozen in ice cubes.

Did You Know? Lime basil makes a novel addition to shortbread cookies, sorbets, and fruit salads.

Soil & Water: Plant in full sun in well-draining soil. Basil does not require fertile soil, however it performs best when organic matter is added. Provide even water throughout development.

Planting & Growing: Start seeds indoors 4-6 weeks before the last frost, or sow directly once soil temperatures have reached at least 70°F. Pinch ends during development for a bushy plant. Sow heavily and thin to the most vigorous seedlings. Basil will not perform below 50°F; pot indoors during winter for a year-round supply.

Harvesting & Storage: Regular harvesting will keep production high. Use leaves fresh or frozen. Remove flower stalks to extend harvest. Be sure to make the last harvest prior to first frost.
