This year in addition to growing regular basil, I also decided to try my hand at growing spicy globe basil. Spicy globe basil has smaller leaves that grows in a sphere shape. The taste is a bit stronger than regular basil. I have never made pesto before, but I love to eat it spread on top of artisan bread. I harvested both spicy globe basil and regular basil and made some pesto and it was delicious! Click here for the recipe I followed.
