5,50 € – 55,00 €
Green Genovese Basil is the most traditional of all basil varieties. Typical of the Mediterranean region, it’s one of the core ingredients of Italian cuisine. With a sweet and delicate aroma, reminiscent of the best-known taste of the mature leaf, these microgreens are the ideal choice for those who wish to enrich their recipes, even the most traditional ones, with a new and nutritious product with a tasty flavour.
How can I grow it?
Green basil, like all other variants of the same family, has a mucilaginous seed: this means that, when it comes into contact with water, it develops a mucous membrane around itself to ensure proper and constant moisture throughout germination. Therefore, we advise you not to soak the seeds, not to plant them too densely and not to water them too much, especially in the first days of growth.
Keep the seeds in the dark by watering them about a couple of times a day until they have fully germinated after 4/5 days. After that, place them in sunlight until they are ready to be harvested: this will ensure that they develop the best possible flavour and aroma.
After about 20 days you can harvest your green basil microgreens, cutting them as close to the root as possible, and enjoy them.
How can I eat it?
Organic green Basil seeds may contain traces of soy, mustard, wheat, gluten and grasses.
Store the seeds in a cool and ventilated place, with temperature between 8° and 20° C, away from weather, humidity changes and sunlight.
