Basil 'Purple Ruffles'
(Ocimum Basilicum Purpurascens)
Basil is a leafy herb originally from Asia and Tropical Africa, though now is grown worldwide for its lovely tasty leaves!
The Purple Ruffles variety has deeply purple coloured leaves, which curl at the edges. Leaves can reach 7cm in length and are toothed, with a mild flavour reminiscent of anise or liquorice.
Basil plants grow up to 60cm tall and 30cm wide. Flowers are purple, and stems and new leaves will also turn purple as the plant matures.
