Basil Lettuce Leaf - 1g (~480 seeds)  
Basil lovers, this is for you—an extremely productive sweet basil boasting leaves nearly as big as your hand! The light green leaves are more sweet than spicy and full of flavor and aroma; ideal as lettuce alternative in wraps, on burgers or sandwiches, or in a beautiful caprese salad. Crinkled leaves hold dressings or marinades better than smooth types in your culinary creations. Very slow to bolt.
