Red basil

Ocimum basilicum

With its red-violet leaves, the red basil is a great alternative to the Mediterranean basil. In use and taste it is very similar to the more common green variant. But it is well known that the eye eats too and so the Rubra with its wild purple provides the special accents in rice, pasta dishes, salads and pestos.
