Pretty enough to be the centerpiece of your patio flowerpot, 'Everleaf Emerald Towers' is true to its name: prolific in leaf growth; deep, emerald, glossy green leaves; and forms an herbal tower. This cultivar holds off flower production up to 12 weeks longer than other types of basil, so you don't have to worry about pinching flowers off to keep your basil producing tender leaves.

Low maintenance, prolific, compact, long harvest period.

Just buy it. This is the first basil I've ever grown that not only didn't bolt quickly but never bolted at all, even when I wasn't harvesting. The only downside to that is now I have to buy more seeds! I'm in North Florida 9a and these plants continued all through the summer up until the hard freeze last month. Takes up very little space in the garden because of it's tall narrow growth habit but full of leaves. Only grew 2 plants and had way more than I could use, I harvested almost daily through the summer and whatever I cut grew back almost immediately. Great taste, no issue with pests or disease despite very amateur and hands-off gardening. Seriously, it didn't care what I did or didn't do in the garden, just did it's thing, looked beautiful and tasted great!
