Cinnamon basil, also known as Mexican spice basil, has a spicy, fragrant aroma and flavor. It contains methyl cinnamate, giving it a flavor reminiscent of cinnamon. Cinnamon basil has somewhat narrow, slightly serrated, dark green, shiny leaves with reddish-purple veins, which can resemble certain types of mint, and produces small, pink flowers from July to September. Its stems are dark purple. Cinnamon basil grows to 18–30 inches tall.
Shipment will be made only from Monday to Thursday.
Cinnamon basil is an easy-to-grow herb. It requires six to eight hours of bright sunlight per day. Although it is often grown as an annual, it is a perennial in USDA plant hardiness zones 9–11. Cinnamon basil is sometimes planted near tomatoes and roses to discourage pests such as whiteflies.
Cinnamon basil is used in teas and baked goods such as cookies and pies. It is also used in pasta, salads, jellies, and vinegar. Outside the kitchen, cinnamon basil is used in dried arrangements and as a potpourri.
Cinnamon basil requires full sunlight and well-drained soil.
Dig a generous amount of compost or well-rotted manure into the soil before
the plantation. Leave plenty of room for Cinnamon Basil, as the plant can reach heights and widths up to 1 m. (3ft).
Water cinnamon basil plants as needed to keep the soil slightly moist but never soggy. Cinnamon basil grown in pots should be watered whenever the top 1 inch (2.5 cm) of the potting mix feels dry. Don't over-water, as basil is prone to rot in muddy soil conditions. A thin layer of mulch will help keep the soil moist and prevent evaporation.
