Basil Napoletano. Big leaf basil. Dark green wrinkled leaves. Very intense flavor & aroma (unlike most big leaf types). Leaves are as big as your hand. Prefers full sun. 8 gram packet.

This is one we can cut and take to farmers market by the bunch, and it doesn't wilt. Also we haven't had mildew problems with it.

I learned in Naples years ago that large leaf basil Napoletano is best used in sandwiches must as we here in the States use lettuce. Delicious I promise!!!

This one is my favorite "sweet" or Italian basil. Huge leaves and luscious aroma and flavor.

the plants are 4" high and the first pair of leaves are as big as my standard basil.
