Is the flavour strong or mild with these basil seeds?
Another small difference from regular basil is that Red Rubin has a stronger flavour.
History of the Red Rubin Basil
Evidence of a reddish basil dates back to the 1830s, when the English botanist George Bentham first discovered an ‘opal’ strain of the plant. It wasn’t until 1950, however, that a genuine red/purple basil cultivar was created: The Dark Opal.
Red Rubin Basil is a new, improved variant of this cultivar, having larger, more deeply purple leaves and being less prone to areas of green developing.
You can guarantee that vibrant Red Rubin Basil will stand out from the crowd!
