Basil – The Culinary Jewel

Basil, often referred to as the 'king of herbs', is a perennial herb in the mint family. Known for its intense aromas and diverse range of colors from deep green to vivid purple, this herb has charmed chefs and food lovers for millennia. Originally from the tropical regions of India, basil has moved beyond continental borders to find its place at the heart of many international cuisines – from sunny Italy to exotic Thailand.

Variants

Our selection of basil seeds allows you to grow a variety of basil types:

  • Sweet Basil: Characterized by large green leaves and a fragrant, slightly sweet taste, it is the most popular variety in Italian cuisine.
  • Purple Basil: With its deep purple leaves and a mild peppery undertone, this variety is not only beautiful to look at, but also a delight to the palate.
  • Thai Basil: Smaller and more pointed leaves with a strong licorice or anise-like flavor, ideal for Thai dishes such as green curry.
  • Lemon Basil: This variety has a bright, citrusy aroma, making it perfect for fish dishes, desserts and refreshing drinks.
  • Special variants: For the adventurous gardener, we also have a selection of unique varieties that will enchant any food lover.

Application

Basil's versatility in the kitchen is unmatched. From the well-known and loved pesto sauce, made from fresh basil leaves, pine nuts, olive oil, parmesan and garlic, to the classic caprese salad, where fresh basil leaves complement juicy tomatoes and soft mozzarella. Whether added at the end of cooking to preserve its aroma or used as a refreshing addition in drinks like basil lemonade, basil has a special place on every dinner table.
