Intense dark purple-red color with mild and aromatic basil flavor - a favorite in our trials! An improved strain of Rubin with very uniform germination and stand, no green off-types and stronger, more upright stems. Tall lavender flower spikes are lovely in bouquets and should be pinched for better leaf production. Compact, upright habit · Edible and ornamental (Ocimum basilicum). Maturity 65 Days.
