Looking for Cinnamon Basil

Attknee Feb 17, 2011 08:11 AM

Tried a dish with cinnamon basil for the first time and was blown away by the taste. I cannot recall ever seeing it for sale in any of the stores I have been in. Does anyone know if it is available in the GTA? Thanks.

    Cinnamon basil is amazing. We grew them from seed. I have never plants for sale. Will have to check out Fiesta Farms in summer. Thanks for the info.

      I think Richter's Herbs have seedlings year round, and they ship. They will definitely have seeds.

        In summer, Fiesta Gardens has cinnamon basil plants for sale.

          you may have to wait until the summer to get a supply since i find that the variety of fresh herbs only increases when shops are selling for gardens. it is quite basic right now. when summer does roll around it's likely that organics 4 life in kensington will have a great variety of options.
