A friend gave me a burpee basil last spring that was unusually lush - large leaves, lots of growth. I made a couple of batches of pesto from this one plant. She does not know specific which basil it was. Can you help me?

It's hard to identify exactly without seeing it, but it might be Sweet Basil or Genovese Basil. You can go to our website at www.burpee.com and search on 'basil.' All the basils we offer will come up. Click on the photo to enlarge it. This might help you identify it.
