Mrs. Burns Lemon Basil was named after Mrs. Janet Burns, a gardener in New Mexico. She obtained it in the late 1930’s from a neighbor who had been growing the plant since 1920. It is a hybrid of sweet basil, with intense flavor, larger leaves and a larger harvest than most lemon basil plants.
Lemon basil is delicious in salads and when liberally added to grilled shrimp or fish. Add a sprig to iced tea for a cool drink on a hot day.
