Abstract

Basil, Ocimum basilicum, is a member of the mint family and a popular annual herb. Basil plants can grow up to two feet in height. Both leaves and stems are used fresh and dry. Leaves are normally green but several cultivars have burgundy or purple leaves. Flowers range from white to shades of pink and purple, and appear from late July into August.
