Emerald Tower blooms up to eight weeks later than other basil, providing multiple cuts throughout the summer. It has been a show piece in our herb trials for several years.

Be sure to try Thai basil, holy basil, and red rubin basil — each variety has its own characteristics. Follow along with this handy How to Grow Basil from Seed Guide and grow some flavour.!
