Basils are so easy for gardeners: fast-growing but non-invasive, with divine fragrance, and leaves that you can actually eat..... It makes sense to collect various kinds. This one is a fresh, invigorating lemon, that doesn't fade out. So many lemon herbs have a lovely scent on the bush, but little flavor. Wonderful in marinades, stir-fries, pasta, or any cooking, as well as tea. One of the finest fresh herbs to add brightness and surprise to summer salads. Two or three of the small leaves per serving is all it takes to make a salad spring to life.
