Now for my foreign readers, this picture above is the basil you will be used to. In a previous post I said how a friend of mine gave me some seeds which sweet basil was part of. I didn’t plant it till some weeks back and this is it blooming right now and I noticed it was different from my own specie of Basil which we locally call Efinrin.
– My local Efinrin has larger leaves and it doesn’t have the shiny look the sweet basil has.
– Efinrin has a stronger scent than the sweet basil which is more subtle.
for now while the sweet basil is still growing, that is all the differences I can make out.
