Farmer Phil's Greek Basil

Greek Basil

Greek Basil plants run average in size, growing only six to 12 inches tall when fully mature. These plants need full sun and moist but well-drained soil to grow. Additionally, all Greek basil transplants should be placed nine to 12 inches apart in your garden and need to be watered regularly – but not too much. Harvests for this plant occur from mid-summer to early fall.


Greek basil can make a pesto, too. Here’s our recipe for Greek basil pesto:

2 cups fresh Greek basil rough chopped
1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese
1/3 cup Pine nuts rough chopped
3 Medium cloves garlic minced
Salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

Add first 5 ingredients to food processor and pulse. Slowly add olive oil till smooth. Makes one cup.
