    Description Briscoe's Tips
     

    Ocimum basilicum


    We have a great selection of culinary herbs and this cousin to traditional basils makes a terrific ingredient in recipes that call for basil or lemon flavored herbs. Try using 'Sweet Dani' in fruit salads and with fish.

    Basil 'Lemon Sweet Dani' is a tall, upright basil plant with high yields. The light, olive-green leaves have a distinctly sweet lemon flavor and scent. This is a must for the basil lover. A beautiful and fragrant ornamental plant, this strain of basil also has a long life as a flowering addition to the garden. 'Lemon Sweet Dani' is a fast growing hybrid basil so plant in full sun and harvest often to keep from going to flower.

    Basil is a great natural pest repellent for everything from aphids to mosquitoes, and its beautiful blooms also attract beneficial pollinators to your garden. Also a great companion plant for many vegetable crops, Basil is a must have for your garden! Read through Briscoe's Tips for more information.

    Size: 30"H x 8"S

    Light: Full sun

    Uses: Has a distinct lemon flavor and scent great for seasoning fish, fruit salads and dishes typically improved by a lemon flavor. Try getting creative with this delicate lemony basil and steep it in your next batch of sweet tea! Delicious!

    Tips: This is a fast growing plant and can be grown in or outdoors, but make sure to keep trimmed or will begin to flower. Pinch this basil back often at the growth tips to force it to flush out and become bushier. Basils are temperamental with water and temperature, so make sure to plant only if the night time temps are above 50 degrees in your area and do not over water.

    Delicious in salads July 10, 2014
    Reviewer: Laura Lafata from Miami Beach, FL United States  
    Sweet Dani is delicious in salads, adding a lovely, lemon flavor that is unexpected.  I add it along with other herbs, nasturtiums and mixed salad greens, and always get compliments when I have dinner guests saying it's the "best salad" they ever ate.
