Pretty purple leaves, great flavor
Windowsill Gardener from NJ wrote on June 16, 2018

I'm growing these indoors in a sunny window and they are doing very well. They have a classic basil flavor and the purple color is very striking. Older leaves do begin to to turn a bit green, but I expected this, as I'm not growing the basil in ideal conditions (they only get about five hours of direct light). Overall, it has done better than any other purple basil variety I've tried to grow inside. Excellent germination rate.
