I love lettuce-leaf basil

I love lettuce-leaf basil or Basil ‘Lettuce Leaf’ depending on what you want to call it. I think it is a very pretty plant. The only problem is, I don’t want to eat it because it is so pretty.

The large leaves would make good mini-wraps, maybe around tomatoes and mozzarella? I just have to talk myself into actually cutting the leaves. The leaves really do look like lettuce up close.

I should just plant another pot of it, then I won’t feel bad about cutting on this one.
