With roots in the mint family, Basil’s pungent-yet-sweet green leaves are prominently used in a plethora of mouth-watering Italian dishes. Considered the “king of herbs” by foodies, this annual plant grows to be 1-4 feet tall and bursts with silky foliage that begs to be snipped. In warm summer months, perky pots of basil are commonly seen outdoors, but it can flourish inside as well. Right before its delicate white flowers emerge, the essential oil contained in the leaves is at its peak.

The very origins of basil are majestic in nature. It is derived from the Greek word “king”. Unique anise/balsamic undertones waft from its leaves, made even stronger when picked. Its intense, spicy-sweet flavor is world-renowned–many Italian/Mediterranean dishes are kissed with basil, such as pesto sauce, pizza margherita, and fresh tomato with buffalo mozzarella.
