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.
