BASIL Sweet Mammoth Seeds

Inc. GST + FREE Shipping

Basil Sweet Mammoth is often referred to as a lettuce leaf basil variety because of its impressive large leaves, but also because the leaves can be used as an aromatic lettuce in salads and as a green bed for a range of dishes. Basil Sweet Mammoth produces tender crisp leaves with a genovese-like aroma and flavour. The variety Basil Sweet Mammoth has been selected for its improved flavour (sweeter flavour than common Basil Mammoth), and superior cultivation characteristics, most specifically the delayed onset of flowering, which generally marks the end of the harvesting period for common basil varieties. Whilst Basil Sweet Mammoth will eventually flower like all basil varieties, regular deep trimming, will prolong the vegetative phase of growth, ensuring you continue to harvest bunches and bunches of tender crispy basil for many months.
