Long live the king of herbs.

Sweet Basil
(Ocimum basilicum)
Sweet Basil, Chopped

A staple in Southern European food, basil is one of the most widely used herbs in the world. It adds a delicately sweet flavor and warm aroma to savory dishes, and naturally combines with garlic, capers and tomatoes.

Our Spice Islands® sweet basil is sourced from California, known for its particularly flavorful basil.

The basil is machine-harvested and dried to preserve its color and aroma. The result is a much cleaner product with a robust taste and fresh green color.

Fun Fact: The ancient Greeks thought so highly of basil that they called it basilikon phyton, or “kingly herb.”

Our Sweet Basil is only basil. Spice Islands® spices and herbs don’t contain added sugar, fillers or other ingredients so you get the most authentic flavor every time.
