Bump up the basil with our aromatic dark opal variety. Piercing purple and intense flavour are what set this rare beauty apart. Our dark opal basil is a staff favourite and can be used in place of traditional basil in any recipe. Taste the difference for yourself! We promise you won't be disappointed. Dark opal also grows the same as traditional basil so you can plant it in your herb garden or pot it indoors to enjoy all year!
Dark Opal Basil likes to be planted in the sun and thrives in a window box or container. Give 6-8 inches of space to fully thrive and plant in well-draining soil. Water 2-3 times per week.
Harvest biggest leaves but don't remove too many as it will stunt growth. Pinch off tips long branches to encourage the plant to fill out.
