Pesto Perpetuo Ocimum × citriodorum
This Basil is just as ornamental as it is tasty! ‘Pesto Perpetuo’ has beautiful soft-green leaves edged in white. This is an excellent selection for patio pots alone or in mixed planters. The ornamental foliage and rich fragrance can be enjoyed, and the fresh leaves can easily be harvested tableside if needed. This variety doesn’t flower so that leaves can be harvested over a more extended season than many basils.
Culinary herbs for gardens and containers. Excellent for adding flavor to soups, sauces, fish, and meat dishes. Use leaves fresh or dry, and keep them in an airtight container. Wash fruits, vegetables, and herbs thoroughly before eating.
