Red rubin basil is an improved variety of Dark opal basil. The perfect combination of ornamental appeal and intense, spicy flavor, Red Rubin is the best red-leafed Basil. Its compact little habit, handsome foliage, and wonderful aroma make it welcome in any sunny setting, while its flavorful leaves make it a must-grow for lovers of flavored vinegar’s and oils!
The leaves are smooth, flat, and large, about 25 mm long and borne very profusely on dense, full little plants a foot tall and 20 to 25cm wide. The shape and texture of the leaves will remind you of large flat-leafed Italian types, and the intensity of the bite lives up to this reputation! The plant itself is so charming that it makes a nice container choice as well as accent plantings in the herb garden or a very showy edging for the annual bed.
