What is Italian Large Leaf Basil?

Italian Large Leaf Basil is an annual plant that will produce edible and fragrant leaves, flowers, and continue to put off a few more leaves through the process of ending it's life cycle.  This basil grows well in "filtered light" (meaning near a bright window or under a tree), and it grows best in 50-90 degree weather.  Warm, but not too warm. 



Health Benefits of Italian Large Leaf Basil

Italian Large Leaf Basil has anti-bacterial properties and anti-inflammatory effects. It's been known to help people with inflammatory health problems like arthritis or IBS.  Basil also contains properties that mimic food preservatives so it makes good sense to try and include more basil into the foods you prepare at home. Basil will help naturally preserve them so they'll be safer, longer. Basil also contains all the good stuff needed for better cardiovascular health.
