Lemon Basil produces compact, bushy plants with smaller, pointed leaves with a pronounced lemon flavor that makes a wonderful addition to Asian and Mediterranean salads, tomato dishes, cheeses, omelets, pesto, fish recipes and teas. Basil grows best in full sun locations with moist, well-drained soil. It can be grown indoors next to a south facing window. Indoor plants should be watered just as the potting mix starts to dry.
