The heritage ‘Classico Italiano’ lives up to its name as the traditional culinary basil, for all round use in the kitchen. Conjuring up the scent of summer, enjoy it with tomatoes or pasta dishes. Very easy to grow, even on a windowsill, this is a mid- early variety producing vigorous plants.


Franchi, established in 1783, is the oldest family-run seed company in the world. It specialises in endangered and heritage vegetable varieties, inspiring growers to support biodiversity by planting something slightly different from the mainstream.
