Basil, Lime


$299 USD
Size
Lime Basil is as fresh and uplifting as it sounds. The bright green leaves are infused with a zesty lime fragrance and tangy flavor that’s best used fresh in coconut-heavy Asian dishes, seafood dishes, fruit salads, limeade, cocktails, and salad dressings. Add at the end of cooking to preserve the citrus flavor, then garnish with the edible flowers.

Harvest the leaves and stems from the top part of the plant, and pinch off edible flower buds as they appear, which prevents the leaves from turning bitter, and signals the plant to branch out and grow more leaves, making a bushier plant.

The more you harvest, the more it grows!
