Lemon Basil is a variety of sweet basil. The leaves are a little smaller and narrower than Genovese basil.
As a microgreen, lemon basil has a sweet basil flavor with a hint of citrus. As the leaves grow larger and mature, the citrus flavor becomes more lemony, and the basil notes decrease.
Lemon basil is nutritious and has an excellent flavor profile that complements any food that goes with lemon. Great with Mexican dishes.
As the leaves grow, the flavor becomes more lemon-like.
This microgreen is more exciting and very different from your regular green sweet basil.
Use Lemon Basil microgreens for cooking, salads, and any dishes to which you would add lemon.
Basil loves the light and will do better in a well-lit location. Heat mats will also speed up the germination and growth of basil.
Try to harvest basil clean; it doesn’t store well after being washed. Best if you wash just before using it.
Lemon Basil grows a bit slower than Genovese Basil, in our experience.
NOTE ***Estimated time to Harvest: 6 to 8 weeks.
Flavor: Mild intense basil taste, refreshing lemony, succulent
