Very attractive, compact plants with the strongest downy mildew resistance we've seen.

This line of downy mildew resistant basil has been trialed against market standards all across the country and has come up aces every time. In our own field trials in northern Vermont, Obsession also impressed us with high marks for plant vigor and bolt tolerance. Plants have a high leaf-to-stem ratio and average 26" in height. Suitable for field or potted plant production. We are excited to offer Obsession as organic seed thanks to our partnership with the team at KBC Specialty Seeds. This variety is protected by a Utility Patent - learn more here.
