200/250 seeds. 

Most popular and loved Basil from Italy. 

Genova, in the North of this wonderful Country, is the mother of the Pesto and 'genovese' means 'from Genova' which is from where this basil comes from.

It becomes sweeter as close to sea it is planted ... funny but true. 

Use it for all your dishes, it has such a distinctive flavour that it is our number 1.

Taste the Mediterranian!
