Anise Basil


Available Now!





Anise Basil has a distinct spicy black licorice flavor that is popular in Italian and Thai dishes! The unique licorice scent comes from the natural anethole in the leaves, the same chemical as in anise. Very similar to Thai Basil, this potent variety originates from Southeast Asia and compliments fish, tomato, and fruit recipes well. With deep purple flushes and rose-colored spikes, this is sure to be an attractive addition to your herb or ornamental garden. Attracts birds, bees, and butterflies.
