HEIRLOOM. 60 days. Lemon and basil make a perfect pairing in cooking, but what if you could have the essence of lemon with the sweet anise flavor of basil all in one plant? Lemon basil plants combine both these amazing scents and flavors for a unique herb experience. Once it has chilled for a day or two, the lemon aroma starts fading away so it must be used IMMEDIATELY. Best directly from the garden.

Lemon basil is a popular herb in Arabic, Indonesian, Philippines, Lao, Malay, Persian and Thai cuisine. In Laos, (where it is called pak i tou) it is the most commonly used type of basil, and no other basil varieties are acceptable as substitutes. Cooks in Laos use this basil a lot in curries, soups and stir-fries. It seems to be added at the end of cooking, probably to protect that fresh-but-fragile flavor and aroma. Thai and Indonesian cooks use it in similar ways.

This chef's delight will thrill the basil lover in everyone. With an intense citrus flavor, this variety is more heat tolerant than other basils making it a favorite in the south. Mrs. Burn’s Lemon Basil is a more intense version of other lemon basils, cultivated since the 1920s and widely considered the best. Unlike most lemon basils, this is not of the Ocimum citriodorum species.
