Pesto Besto is the most amazing seed basil you’ve ever seen. This is truly a game-changing plant—it is the most downy mildew resistant seed grown Italian sweet basil. Downy mildew is a disease that often plagues basil. This large, vigorous plant produces a high yield of usable, deliciously aromatic leaves. The more you harvest, the better it grows. It’s time to make the switch from your old basil to Pesto Besto. You’ll never look back!

Harvest: The more you harvest, the better it grows. Best grown in the landscape, although a large container can work as well. Harvest sprays of leaves by cutting stems just above two new sprouting lateral branches to get lush regrowth.

Fertilize weekly with Proven Winners Water Soluble Plant Food.
