Basil Licorice


SKU: N/A Categories: , ,


Heirloom from Asia. Tall, fast-growing plants up to 30cm have distinctive violet stems, veining, and flower bracts with mauve blooms and 2″ long leaves. Licorice Basil has a sweet licorice flavor and scent.

SOWING: Direct seed (recommended): Plant seeds 1/4″ deep, 2-3 seeds per inch, in rows 18″ apart. Firm the soil over the seeds. Thinning is not necessary, but a final spacing of 4-8″ apart produces healthy full plants. Note: Basil requires some light for germination, so sow more shallowly than other basils. Transplant: Sow indoors 6 weeks prior to setting out. Plant 1/4″ deep and keep at 70°F (21°C) for best germination. Transplant to the field when seedlings have 3-4 sets of leaves, spacing at 4-8″ apart in rows 18″ apart. 5-10 days at 65-70°F (18-21°C).
