Looking for the best large leaf basil on the market? Give 'Sweet Italian Large Leaf Basil' a try! This is the authentic basil that is used in many Italian dishes. Standing 24 to 30 inches tall and 12 inches wide, this plant is a hard worker in the garden. It resists pests including mites, aphids, and worms. Basil likes to be planted in a full sun location after the threat of frost has passed. Keep in evenly moist soil and fertilize regularly with a vegetable fertilizer. When harvesting, cut it back to 1/4 inch above a node, which is where the branch meets the stem. Be sure to leave enough foliage so the plant can continue to grow.
