A many-branched annual grown from seed each year. The purplish, oval-leaved plant grows to 1 1/2 feet tall with flowers that range in color from white to purplish. Sweet basil grows well as a container plant indoors and outdoors in a container garden, but does not do well grown in Alaska's cool garden soils. The center of the plant should be pinched out when the young seedlings are only a few inches tall to make the plant bushier and more compact. The leaves have a taste similar to pepper or cloves and can be used fresh or dried with meat, fish, eggs or vegetables. Also, sweet basil is an excellent seasoning for making tomato sauce.
