After a long wait, a downy mildew-resistant basil with large leaves has arrived! With the culmination of years of work at Rutgers University in New York, they have managed to breed a basil that is downy mildew resistant. Strong downy mildew resistance allows this basil to be grown anywhere, from pots and windowsills to greenhouse borders and patios.

This is a huge step forward, as producing a Genovese type with a compact, but highly productive plant habit is hard to come by. On this variety, the leaves are large, cupped, and medium green and let off a sweet and spicy aroma.
