The number of varieties for basil is quite bewildering.

For those very fond of the herb, each variety has a distinct hue and nuance in taste which tells them apart from each other.

This Ferry-Morse Organic Dark Opal Purple Basil will become one of your top basil choices not only for color, but for its interesting taste as well.

The leaves of the Dark Opal Purple Basil are flat and open, unlike in many other varieties.

The matte purple leaves are surrounded by a very thin green outline. A similar amount of licorice flavor among many basil varieties is also present in the Opal Purple Basil.

The combination of the standard sweet basil flavor, along with the mild licorice taste and other flavor elements, produces a new and exciting experience for the taste buds.

Not only are the leaves fragrant and tasty, but decorative as well.
