New! Heirloom. 90 days. Indispensible culinary mainstay that gives pizza, pasta and other southern European and Mediterranean dishes their characteristic flavor. This superior, classic Greek variety is white-flowered and has slightly fuzzy leaves; their flavor is richer and more potent than that of the more commonly-seen pink-flowered types. Used fresh or dried. Sprawling plants reach about two feet in height and about as wide; flowers are beloved by bees and other pollinators. Fine- almost dust-like seeds are very tiny, should be surface-sown, kept very warm and constantly moist for prompt germination. Perennial, Zones 4-9. 280,000 seeds/oz. Pkt (~ 200 seeds) plants 8′.
