Basil Seeds, Lime


Ocimum americanum

Tangy and refreshing citrus flavor is the hallmark of this variety. Use it to give gourmet flavor to fish and chicken dishes, vinegars, dressings, sauces, and herb oils. An excellent alternative to hard to find lemongrass in Thai dishes. The complex flavor is a surprising addition to desserts and teas, or our favorite use, in Agua Fresca!
