Germination was much higher than expected and the plants were very vigorous and never bolted. A strong and lingering aroma of sweet basil and licorice. Eaten fresh it had a minty undertone that complimented the sweet basil taste. The taste and aroma remains for a long time, unlike other basils. This is a keeper!

Franchi Lettuce Leaf Basil has the best and quickest germination rate of any basil that I've ever grown. It's mild, sweet, delicious and never bitter. This basil is a healthy, fast-grower... you'll love it!
