Ocimum basillicum (Cinnamon) is an aromatic spicy variety of basil with an assortment of cuisines, deserts, teas and potpourri. The Heirloom cinnamon basil seeds will produce full size plants measuring from 18” to 30” high and 1’ to 1.5’ wide. Leaves grow to two inches long that are glossy and dark, reddish purple stems with pink flowers. Best while fresh but also maintains much of its flavors when dried. This type of basil plant has relatively great germination rates, generally between five to ten days. Repels insects due to its strong aroma.
If you enjoy herbs and spices, combine the two and grow cinnamon basil (Ocimum basilicum), an herb that features the taste and aroma of basil with overtones of cinnamon. Like other types of basil, it grows outdoors as an annual in all parts of the United States, or you can grow it as a potted plant outdoors or indoors for easy harvest all year long. It's quite easy to grow when given basic care and a little extra attention now and then.
You can start cinnamon basil from seeds, sowing them indoors in early spring to grow outdoors, or at any time to keep plants indoors. Start seeds in moistened sterile potting soil or soil-less mix, sprinkling them in flats or pots; cover seeds with 1/4 inch of soil or mix. Keep the mixture moist until seeds sprout, usually in five to seven days, then move seedlings into a sunny window, watering them whenever mix surface is slightly dry. For a pot, space seedlings to allow 12 inches between plants, and use additional pots to keep more plants; outdoors in the ground, plant seedlings 12 inches apart once danger of spring frost has passed. You can also direct-seed cinnamon basil when the weather warms in spring, keeping the soil lightly moist until seeds sprout.
