Lime basil has light green, tear-drop shaped leaves with smooth, slightly toothed margins. The leaves are smaller than the more common sweet basil.
The leaf stalks can grow up to 40 centimeters long, and during the mid to late-summer months will produce long bracts of tiny white flowers.
The leaves offer a strong, somewhat sweet, citrusy scent all but masking the camphor scent common to sweet basil. They have a very distinctive lime flavor, due to the high concentrations of the volatile oil citral.
Excellent for flavouring sauces, dressing and desserts.
Lime Basil cen be used in a variety of dishes with chicken , fish, sauces , fruit
salad and Thai dishes
Or smash some leaves between the palm of your hands and put into a G&T!
