basil plant (looks like genovese) smells like thai basil

peakchuaNovember 6, 2011

Hi. i came back from canada a few months ago with some basil seeds from seeds for change and berton seeds. i grew the genovese basil and i got 1 regular genovese basil plant and another one that looks like it but smells like thai basil (verified when i compared the smell to my siam queen one.)

Easy answer, taste it, seeds sometimes on occasion get mixed up at the factory, they are tiny.
