Organic Lemon Basil is the aromatic variant of the traditional Green Basil. It stands out because its small green leaves contain a delicate flavour, characteristic of the classic variety, as well as a fresh, citrusy lemon aroma. These microgreens are therefore the ideal choice for those who wish to enrich their recipes, even the most traditional ones, with new and tasty flavours.
Organic Basil Lemon
Organic Lemon Basil, botanical name Ocimum basilicum, is a fresh and Mediterranean alternative to the classic Green Basil. Its seeds develop small green leaves, more or less dark depending on the light under which they are grown. Like all basil varieties, this one grows rather slowly and does not develop much height; however, these small leaves, which contain a delicate flavour with a citrus aftertaste, will fully satisfy your expectations from the first taste.
How can I grow it?
Producing organic Lemon Basil sprouts is quick and easy, even at home.
Lemon 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 Lemon Basil microgreens, cutting them as close to the root as possible, and enjoy them.
How can I eat it?
With their fresh, citrusy aroma, organic Lemon Basil microgreens will bring summer to your every dish. Try them to add flavour to salads, fish dishes and desserts: they will become the tasty and nutritious touch you can’t do without!
Organic 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.
