  • Love this basil!

    This basil is a godsend for me. I dry my basil for the winter and for the previous 2 seasons my basil got moldy spore and I had to throw it away. This basil is still going strong and is beautiful, fragrant, and delicious.

  • Amazing, Highly recommended

    This basil really lives up to its name.....Amazing. It produced huge amounts of basil all summer and is still going strong. No signs of any disease. It looks as good now (end of Sept.) as it did in June. I would highly recommend “Amazel Basil”.
