This intensely flavored, aromatic basil will produce well if harvested regularly. The leaves have prominent veins and serrated edges and grow to about 15" tall. Gale Morris of Iowa donated the variety to Seed Savers Exchange in 2014. Gale received the seeds from his friend, Des Moines truck farmer Tony Scavo. Tony's parents, Nick and Patricia, brought this heirloom to the United States when they emigrated from Bari, Italy, in the early 1900s.
