Basil Genovese is great for drying or fresh use. It is one of the most popular herbs for pesto. It's high yielding, with a uniform growth habit and has highly scented sweet leaves. It's great for container plantings. This delicious, edible herb's culinary uses also include flavoring for sauces, soups and dressings. Pinch plant to promote bushy growth.
Harvest sprigs just before the flowers open for the most intense flavor. Strip leaves and either chop or leave whole. You can pick leaves to use in recipes as needed or freeze for later use. To freeze, fill each cell of an ice cube tray 3/4 full, add hot water to cover (to retain the leaves color), and freeze. Remove cubes from trays and store in a freezer bag or container to add to recipes later.

In light of everything going on in the world we have implemented some changes to ensure your safety. Our hours will be looking a little different Monday through Friday; we will be having reserved hours for those who are members of the vulnerable population group. 8 am to 9 am will be the time frame set aside for your needs to shop. We are also taking steps to help provide a cleaner environment for you and your loved ones. We have scheduled an employee to come in each morning prior to us opening to clean the store. We also strongly encourage that when you're in the store please practice social distancing. You should be at least 6 ft from others. As of right now we are still not set up to provide services such as curbside assistance. We are trying to do what we can in light of everything going on in the world. We encourage you to practice the safety guidelines that have been ordered by our Governor and Health Department. We appreciate your continued support of our small businesses during these unforeseen difficult times.
