This particular strain Spicy Globe (ocimum basilicum minimum) was selected from a much more vigorous small leaf type. Unfortunately growers will always experience a small percentage of off types or taller plants until further selection and back crossing is done. Spicy Globe is a favorite strain of bedding plant growers. It is very compact and maintains its mounded growth without pinching. As a bedding plant it maintains its appearance well (minus taller rogues) in flats, paks, pots or 804 trays. It grows very fast from seed to sale in 804's or about 10-11 weeks in 4 in/10 cm pots. Flavor and fragrance of Spicy Globe is the same as regular basil.

CULTURE: Sow Feb. 20th - Mar. 15th for May sales. Seed is smaller than regular basil so you should be able to sow 16 flats (20x12 in/51x31 cm) @ 600-700 seedlings per flat with an ounce of seed. Germinate at 70°F/21°C soil temp. for 8-10 days. As seedlings appear, lower greenhouse temperatures to 50°F/10°C to promote slower growth. Keep growing area well ventilated and treat plants once a week with a fungicide to control damping off. Never use ice cold water to water the plants. 'Transplant seedlings carefully at the same depth as they were in the seedling flat.

DIRECT SEEDING: This is possible outdoors in early May. Transplant 3 weeks after germination. Plants should mature in 70 days. Thin seedlings to 8 in/20 cm apart.
