Introduced form the East in the sixteenth century, the sweet pungent flavour of basil has been popular ever since as a culinary herb and needs to be used fresh as the dried herb is not comparable in flavour. There are many varieties of basil and all are tender, but this gorgeous one really likes the hottest driest weather possible.
