The Genovese MV variation of Basil seed packets
Non-GMO Genovese Basil seeds. Basil may be grown from seed sown early indoors and transplanted outside after frost, or sown directly in the garden, or planted as a potted plant. Seedlings can emerge 7-14 days after seeds have been planted. 60-69 days to maturity.
Begin light harvesting after plants have been established. It is best done in the early morning when the temperature is cooler and the leaves are less likely to wilt. A full harvest should be completed just before the plants start to flower. Make sure you cut the entire plant 4-6 inches above the ground to promote a second growth.
