Growing the aromatic green Basil plant requires careful treatment and a lot of patience. If you are looking for a simpler and quicker alternative that is just as tasty, organic sprouts are the perfect solution: not only they retain the fresh and delicate aroma of the adult leaf, but they concentrate even more nutrients in their small roots. And you can produce them at home in just one week!


Organic Green Basil

Organic Green Basil, botanical name Ocimum basilicum, is the classic variety of basil, the one most widely known and used in cooking. Its seeds take a few days longer to germinate than most other varieties, but in the end you will get small sprouts with a fresh, sweet taste that will satisfy from the first taste.

How can I grow it?

Producing organic green Basil sprouts is quick and easy, even at home.
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 to avoid soaking and start rinsing them in lukewarm water at least 2/3 times a day. By storing the seeds in the dark and continuing to rinse them regularly, you can consume your organic green Basil sprouts after about a week.

How can I eat it?
Green basil sprouts, with their sweet and delicate taste, are a wonderful substitute for the classic mature leaf, with the added bonus of being super nutritious. You can therefore use them to prepare sauces and pestos, or add a touch of freshness and crunch to the most varied dishes: salads, fish and meat dishes, soups or, why not, pizza!

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.
