This is a beautiful variety with a nice taste not unlike regular sweet basil, but slightly less sweet with a tiny bit of licorice flavor. I am still growing these under grow lights to get ready for spring, so I am sure their flavor will change once they get proper sunlight. Great germination rate and they transplant well.
