About the Emerald Towers Basil Plant

Elevate your culinary creations with the remarkable Emerald Towers Basil plant. This exquisite herb, known scientifically as Ocimum basilicum ‘Emerald Towers’ Basil, offers both aesthetic allure and tantalizing flavor. With its distinctive columnar growth habit, this basil variety showcases deep, glossy green leaves, creating a captivating herbal tower. Hailing from the Genevese lineage, its leaves deliver the authentic basil taste that enhances your dishes.

How to Grow Emerald Towers Basil

Thriving best in full sun and requiring medium water, the ‘Emerald Towers’ Basil reaches a height of 24-36 inches and spreads 8-12 inches wide. What sets this basil apart is its delayed flowering, extending the harvest season and preserving the tender leaf production.

A perennial in the garden for warmer zones 10-11 and a potted kitchen herb for cooler regions, this herb will flourish indoors or in a greenhouse. Just be sure this herb gets plenty of light.

This plant’s excellence is championed for its resistances and prolific growth. Whether for garnishing pizzas, accentuating pastas, or infusing salads, the Emerald Towers Basil promises a consistent supply of aromatic, flavorful leaves.
