Genovese Basil


This Italian variety has extremely tender, fragrant, extra-large, dark green leaves and is superb for pesto.

Basil pairs exquisitely with lemon, tomato and garlic. Sweet basil is an essential ingredient in Italian and Mediterranean cuisine and loves being added to pasta, pizza, creamy sauces, dressings, soups, salads and olive oil. Pair basil with chicken, beef, tomatoes, eggs, chives, dill, oregano, rosemary, thyme, pepper and sea salt.


This specialized European strain has less of a tendency to become bitter after long, slow periods of cooking. “Genovese” has a reputation for making the best pesto, as well as the best “insalata caprese,” which is dish consisting of tomato slices topped with mozzarella cheese and fresh basil leaves.

    This is your store if you like to cook healthy food. Fresh Flavor sells fresh herb and lettuce I can’t find at big box store. I enjoy eating healthy and shopping where I can buy my healthy ingredients for recipes.

    This has filled a gap for me. A couple times a week if I want to make a fast meal I can run in here or ask for delivery instead of dealing with a huge store and get all I need. Prices are good, sale prices are usually very good.

    It’s the best thing I’ve ever tasted! it has so much flavor!
