It has a mucilaginous seed, meaning that it develops a jelly-like coating when it gets wet. Mist more frequently to keep the coating moist. Grows very well hydroponically and does better in well-lit conditions, but it is a slower grower. You may experiment with harvest times past 10 days. Purple basil is a spectacular purple color with green highlights that makes for a colorful garnish. Micro basil does not grow tall, so you will need to harvest close to the root line and rinse well. Micro basil seeds are among the more expensive seeds but are worth it for their amazing color and intense basil flavor.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eMicro basil is an outstanding choice for caprese, pesto or any recipe that calls for fresh basil. The flavor of micro basil is a bit more intense than adult basil.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003e***Note:\u003c\/strong\u003e Although we have indicated the specific medium that this particular seed prefers, you can still experiment with either soil or hydroponic mediums.
