Basil (Ocimum basilicum 'Caesar') in the Basils Database

This is the first year I'm growing this large, slightly curling leaf basil from seeds I got in a seed swap here in Nov. 2017. I'm impressed by its very fragrant, sweet smell when cut. I'm growing some plants in a pot and some out in the garden. They are about 7" plants, mid June, which is 1/2 of the 15 inches they should grow to as a compact variety. I'm very pleased with this 1st season of growing it.
