The Q&A Archives: Edible Basil

Question: Are all varieties of Basil okay to eat? I planted several types but unfortunately lost track of which is which. Also, is it too late for me to start zucchini?

Answer: I can't think of any variety of basil that isn't OK to eat, so let the cooking begin! Some may have flavors that aren't suitable to what you are cooking, for example Cinnamon Basil may taste odd in a pasta sauce, but OK with a meat dish like lamb. It is probably too late for you to start zucchini in your area (sorry).
