Basil seeds from Liguria produce a lovely basil plant with fragrant, small leaves. This particular variety of basil is used to make pesto, which originates in Genoa in the Liguria region of Northern Italy.

Sow these basil seeds from Liguria in spring and summer. Like all varieties, Ligurian basil loves warmth and sun.

Use the basil leaves to make an authentic Pesto Genovese – combine plenty of basil leaves, crushed garlic, olive oil, Parmesan cheese and pine nuts to form a thick, fragrant paste. Stir through pasta, spread onto open sandwiches and spoon a little over green beans and new potatoes.
