Bloch’s Farm Green Lake, WI
What do you call the most amazing
basil you’ve ever grown? Amazel, of course. This is truly a game-changing
plant—the first downy mildew-resistant variety of Italian sweet basil. This
vegetatively propagated variety is sterile and sets no seed allowing it to put
more energy into vegetative growth than other basil varieties even after flower
initiation. Vigorous, large, well-branched plants produce a higher yield and
last all season. The more you harvest, the better it grows, expect a height
20-32”. Does best in full sun and well-drained soil. University of Georgia gave
it their ‘Best of the Best’ award at the season’s end, and the Champaign County
Illinois Master Gardener Idea Garden awarded it their Gold Medal for
performance and flavor while Boerner Botanical Garden in Hales Corners, WI gave
it their ‘Best Performance Overall for Annuals.
