Basil - Lettuce Leaf
One of the more interesting basil cultivars is lettuce leaf basil, named for its large curly green leaves with a sweeter flavour, similar to cloves, than other varieties. Like most basil cultivars, lettuce leaf grows well indoors for year-round use in cooking, but it can also thrive outdoors.
Lettuce Leaf basil seeds produce very large, bright, puckered green leaves with a wonderful aroma. Provide high soil fertility and a light, well-dug soil to get the largest leaves.
Tear the big leaves into salad mixes or use whole leaves to wrap savory morsels like brochettes or salad rolls. Lettuce Leaf Basil is a sweet basil, with milder flavour than the Genovese types. It's perfect for the home gardener with its versatility.
