Basil, Sweet Nufar

Basil, Sweet Nufar

Basil, Sweet Nufar is a tender annual famous for its culinary use. This is a variety of the classic Sweet Basil, bred for sturdy growth, larger leaves and disease resistance.

Plants require full sun in a sheltered well drained position, they really do not like cold wet conditions. Ideally you should grow them in pots or containers. We advise that Basils are kept in the glasshouse or on a windowsill. You can then move plants outside during warm settled weather. Try not to water in the evening. Remove flowers in order to promote leaf production.

Harvest young leaves from the top to encourage new growth. Always use sharp scissors when cropping.

This aromatic herb is great in the kitchen and adds flavour to many recipes. For best results add towards the end of cooking. It is famous for the unique flavour it imparts to tomato and pasta dishes. One of the best known recipes for Basil is of course Pesto sauce.
