Description

Amazel Basil is the first Italian sweet basil that is resistant to downy mildew, a disease that often plagues basil. And since it’s sterile, this large, vigorous plant produces a higher yield of usable, deliciously aromatic leaves.

Harvest: The more you harvest, the better it grows. Best grown in the landscape, although a large container can work as well. Harvest sprays of leaves by cutting stems just above two new sprouting lateral branches to get lush regrowth.

  • 20-36 inches tall and 12-24 inches wide at maturity
  • Annual except in zones 10-11
  • Plant in full sun (6+ hours daily)

Fertilize weekly with Proven Winners Water Soluble Plant Food.
