In the Garden
Purple Ruffles basil will often vary in color, leaf shape, and plant size depending on where you buy your plant because they can vary genetically. Our version of purple ruffle basil is large and “floppy” with little green color in the leaves. Generally, as temperatures cool down the leaves will turn darker purple. This basil is very hardy and will do great in the full sun in well drained soil.
Purple Ruffles basil does have a distinct flavor of licorice and cinnamon. The leaves can be used to make a herbal vinegar that will be pink in color. The leaves make a great garnish on your plate and look great in flower arrangements. The ruffled purple leaves also make a great addition to your garden by adding lots of color.
