'Dolce Fresca' basil's name translates roughly to sweet and fresh, and for basil enthusiasts, that is just what we want to hear. This Genovese-style basil grows into a compact, rounded form about a foot tall and wide, with tender leaves perfect for pesto, fresh salads, soups, and any dish calling for fresh basil. The size and shape of this variety makes it an attractive addition to the summer garden as an ornamental as well as an edible, and is a good candidate for container planters, hanging baskets, and garden borders. 'Dolce Fresca' basil is also a late bloomer, meaning that the sweet flavor of the leaves will keep on longer than other varieties that bloom in mid-summer.
