Spicy Globe Basil
Botanical Name: Ocimum basilicum 'Spicy Globe'

Spicy globe basil has a distinctive spicy, clove and anise like flavour. It may be used just like any other basil for cooking but has especially good results with Thai and Italian dishes. The leaves are so small that there is no need to chop them up! Globe basil leaves also add a very distinctive taste to sauces and fruit desserts.

This basil cultivar was developed in Italy and also goes by the name O. basilicum ‘minimum’. It is roughly half the size of normal sweet basil and grows from 15-30cm high in a compact ball, or globe, shape. It is so uniform in its growth and appearance that it can have a ‘just pruned’ look about it! It is great in pots and as a garden border when planted about 30cm apart.

Each basil variety has distinctive features, however, the general properties and growing conditions are very similar and details can be found in our Basil entry.
