Micro Basil tastes quite similar to full-size basil, just more mellow and refined. The leaves have a texture identical to full-sized basil, zesty and bright, with a light anise flavor. It is slightly sweet and when grown to true leaf stage has a good “crunch”. Not quite strong enough for a red sauce, use these in anything you want a basil highlight without being overbearing. Toss them in salads, pasta, or on sandwiches (BLTs!).
