Lemon Basil Seed

$0.59$0.79

The flavor of Lemon Basil is very intense! As young microgreens, they taste like sweet basil with a citrus aftertaste.

As the leaves get larger, the basil flavor is replaced by a strong lemon flavor.

This microgreen is more interesting and is very different than your basic green sweet basil.

Use Lemon Basil microgreens for cooking, in salads, and in any dishes that you would add lemon too.

Sold in packages with the correct weight for the Home Microgreens Tray, 5- by 5-inch trays, and also by the Gram.

Lemon Basil is a variety of sweet basil. The leaves are a little smaller and narrower than Genovese basil.

As a microgreen, lemon basil has a sweet basil flavor with a hint of citrus. As the leaves grow bigger and mature the citrus flavor becomes more lemony and the basil notes decrease.

Lemon basil is not only nutritious but has an intense flavor profile that complements any food that goes with lemon. Great with Mexican dishes.

Basil is a mucilaginous seed, meaning that it develops a jelly-like coating when it gets wet. Basil loves the light and will do better in a well-lit location. Heat mats will also speed up germination and growth of basil.

Try to harvest basil clean; it doesn’t store well after being washed. Best if you wash just before using it.

Lemon Basil grows a bit slower than Genovese Basil in my experience.
