Common Name:  Italian Pesto Basil
Botanical Name : Ocimum basilicum  

This basil has especially glossy dark green leaves and full-bodied zesty flavor for really authentic Italian pesto sauce.

Common Name:  Sweet Green Basil
Botanical Name : Ocimum basilicum  

Few types of basil are as vigorous as this variety. These extra productive plants develop a seemingly endless supply of green, aromatic leaves. This variety is ideal for gardeners who only have room for a few basil plants in their garden. The spicy-sweet flavor of its leaves will add zest to almost any recipe. Don't forget to use the flowers, too.
