Purple Basil - Red Rubin ECO

Ocimum basilicum var. purpurascens

A fabulous salad basil with beautiful dark purple leaves. The leaves are slightly toothed, glossy, and flavorful. The attractive light purple flower spikes are not only incredibly decorative, but they can also be eaten and used as a garnish. The leaves are good fresh or dried in salads and stews. In addition to the variety’s edible properties, the Red Rubin basil is also an incredibly attractive ornamental plant. It looks incredibly decorative in pots on the balcony or on the windowsill.

We recommend making homemade pesto with Red Rubin because the color is so magical. Imagine a fancy caprese salad with colorful tomatoes and purple pesto, magical!

(A big plus for this variety is that it is organic!)
