Basil Lime

Finally, today the temperature outside went up to around the freezing point and, with the bright sun, it was lovely to go for a walk.
I started seeds a few couple of weeks ago and although most of them have sprouted, only the basil has been able to do any significant growing .  The windowsill has been too cold for the flower seedlings to do anything much.
This variety of basil is called lime basil, but when I sampled it, to me, the overtone was licorice not lime.  It will be an interesting flavour to try to cook with.
