Fresh Genovese Basil

Genovese basil is a well-known type of sweet basil that is widely used in Italian cooking. Its smooth, glossy-textured leaves give off a potent and sweet aroma when crushed. The flavor of Genovese basil is sweet with a slightly peppery taste. Its mild flavor makes it a popular choice in many recipes and a preferred alternative to more strongly-flavored basil varieties.
