GENERAL INFORMATION

  • Basil, also called great basil, is a culinary herb of the family Lamiaceae.
  • Basil is native to tropical regions from central Africa to Southeast Asia.
  • It is a tender plant and is used in cuisines worldwide.

SOIL REQUIREMENT

  • Basil does its best in well-drained, moist soil with a neutral pH.
  • In fact, if the soil is too rich, basil loses some of its flavor intensity.
