Basil leaves are vibrant green and heart shaped ranging from half an inch to as large as four inches in length. Basil is highly aromatic, offering notes of citrus, clove, anise and cinnamon, all providing a sensory memory that sets basil apart from other herbs.
Hydroponically grown Basil is available year-round.
Basil is botanically classified as Ocimum basilicum, and is a member of the Lamiaceae or mint family along with thyme, rosemary, mint and oregano. Its botanical name translates in Greek to smell and king, hence Basil's unofficial title, “the king of herbs”. Plants of the Ocimum genus are characterized by stems with square cross sections and leaves that grow opposite each other on the stem.
