Basil Red Boza
A beautiful addition to any herb garden with its deep foliage and pink flowers. High in volatile oils, basil is responsible for the heady aroma and strong flavor so essential to cooking. Pick the leaves and use fresh or dried in tomato dishes, pasta sauces, vegetables, and soups. You can also use basil in the garden as a companion plant to repel aphids, mites, and tomato hornworms.
