Basil Genovese is an annual herb with medium-sized leaves. The herb has a strong smell and does not become very high. The herb does not bolter early and prefers shelter. This variety is very well suited for pesto. When cutting, always make sure to cut above the first leaf, so that the plant can regrow. As soon as the stems become hard, only the leaves can be used.
