Sweet basil (Ocimum basilicum) is the most familiar basil, and the most widely grown. Considered the basic basil. Medium-green, smooth, shiny leaves have a soft appearance. Characterized as Mediterranean or European-type basil, the taste is sweet, floral and delicate, with slightly minty notes, an anise-like aroma and clove-like undertones. Use leaves fresh or dried. Please check medicinal properties carefully before use.
