Taste: Greek basil is the preferred variety for making classic pesto sauce, and this micro green offers a milder and sweeter version of that balance between citrus, pepper and mild anise finish.
Uses: Micro basil works well with many classic pairings the mild and sweet characteristics of green basil make it ideal for incorporating into sweet applications; pairing well with blueberries, strawberries, apricot, pineapple, nectarines, peaches, watermelon, vanilla, lemon verbena, coconut, honey, ginger, cinnamon, white chocolate, and even fruity cocktails like mojitos, gimlets or martinis. Like most microgreens, Greek basil is intended for raw preparations, specifically as a garnish, as the delicate leaves will wilt if exposed to prolonged heat.
