In Basket: May 2010


| April/May 2010


Dear Herb Companion,

I have the elusive chocolate basil plant. I purchased it last year from a local nursery, Forget-Me-Not Garden Center in Lima, Ohio. The leaves are a deep green color and when the leaves are crushed there is a chocolate aroma. When children visit, they seem really fascinated by it.

We asked Kelli for a cutting of her plant. As of press time, we hadn’t heard back, though. We’ll keep you posted! —Eds.
