This particular basil variety is from Johnny’s Seeds, where I purchase a number of my plant seeds. Although I’ve found this variety is less heat-tolerant than other basil varieties, the herb is more fragrant, evoking the scent one would expect of a typical Italian basil.
As with all basil, be sure to harvest regularly and clip. This encourages a bushier plant with more leaves. Full sun. Deep water once a day. It prefers soil that dries out before being moistened again, but is somewhat thirsty. If the soil gets too dry, the plant bolts and goes to seed. Otherwise, because of Hawaii’s warm climate, this plant can last months before needing to be restarted.
