We are all familiar with basil leaves, now its time to have them as a micro-herb!

Genovese basil is also commonly known as sweet basil. It is the most widely used variant of basil, regularly used in tomato sauces, pesto, pizza and soup.

Basil microgreens are slightly more challenging to grow compared to the usual microgreens, growling slower and shorter than typical microgreens. In exchange for the trouble, you are rewarded with a superbly intense basil flavor.
