They’re both Ocimum basilicum, but their flavors differ greatly.
This is Thai basil…we ate some tonight.
This is Genovese basil. It’s more basil-y, IMHO. We’ll have some of it later this week.
Given that we’ve been gone a while (so the plants have a long opportunity to grow), and it rained overnight (so weeds are easier to pull and get most of the roots), the weeding I did today was teed up.
Ummmmm for both.
