Description

Cinnamon basil has a strong cinnamon scent. Pick the leaves and use fresh or dried in tomato dishes, pasta sauces, vegetables and soups. This variety grows 45 to 75cm high and around 30 to 45cm wide. The sturdy stems are dark purple red, with dark green, cinnamon scented leaves growing up to 5cm long. Small terminal racemes of pink flowers are borne in the summer.

Cinnamon Basil is a cultivar of Ocimum basilicum (sweet basil). It contains cinnamate, the same chemical that gives cinnamon its flavour. The combination of the basil and cinnamon flavours make this basil especially popular for use in hot drinks and with fruits.

Cinnamon Basil is normally fairly low maintenance and is quite easy to grow. Grow it in a rich, well-drained soil in full sun. Pinch out the growing tips to encourage bushier plants and to delay flowering. Harvesting leaves before flowering occurs will prevent any bitterness.
