'El Greco- Bonsai' Grafted Ocimum Minimum

One superb Basil all season long!
Grafted Basil varieties deliver fantastic quality that consumers will love:
  • Higher durability to cold conditions
  • High leaf yield 
  • Stronger plant
  • Faster re-growth after harvest
  • Disease tolerance for soil born diseases

Basil is perennial in tropical climates. Its high sensitivity to unfavorable (cold) conditions, however, means that the amateur gardener is only able to enjoy it for a short period. The Grafted Basil increases the survival rate and life expectancy for years, especially if brought indoors once winter arrives.
