BASIL MAMMOTH

ONE OF THE BEST OF THE LETTUCE LEAF BASILS, A WONDERFUL COOL GREEN COLOUR, VERY EXOTIC AND TROPICAL LOOKING AND WITH A SUPERB SWEET TASTE!

Description
Sweet Mammoth Basil is a desirable tender-leafed basil with leaves as big as your hand! With ruffled, jagged leaves, Sweet Mammoth has a sweet flavour that’s perfect for sauces, pesto salads and even fresh on a sandwich. Basil Sweet Mammoth produces tender crisp leaves with a Genovese-like aroma and flavour.

Try growing this basil on a sunny windowsill – it loves filtered light. Removing flowers from basil encourages maximum growth and the best leaf production. Pick before flowering for the best flavour. Very ornamental too – looks great on the patio!

Grow Notes
Annual growing to 30-50cm tall, grow in part or full sun in moist well drained soils.

Frequent and consistent watering will result in lush, green growth from plants without the need for frequent fertilization. At harvest time, make certain only to remove about one-fourth of the plant to ensure continued basil harvests throughout the season.

Sow
Spring and Summer planting. Start basil seeds in seed trays at 2mm depth and keep soil moist but not wet till germination. Or plant direct, 40cm apart at 2mm depth.

Germination
5-10 days at 18-35°C

Maturity
50- 60 days to maturity. Annual.
