A new Gourmet Garden Variety that is easy to Grow.

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.
