Basil, Dark Opal


80 day.  Purple basil has been around since the late 1800's, and is really a beautiful addition to your garden.  It has deep purple leaves with lavender flowers.  A great herb to add to flavored oils or vinegars, and a wonderful contrast in color and companion to tomatoes in a hanging basket.  It is a beautiful contrast to green basil, and a wonderful garnish.


Minimum of 200 seeds per packet.

Lovely and tasty!

As a person with a decidedly brown thumb, even I was able to grow this basil. It is easy to grow, it's purple hue looks striking on slices of heirloom tomatoes or in your favorite recipe, and it tastes as lovely as it looks. Would definitely recommend!
