Red Rubin Basil
Red Rubin Basil
Red Rubin Basil is a red-coloured basil. More specifically, it has dark, reddish-purple leaves and stems, making it most appealing for salads and garnishes. It has a much stronger flavour than regular basil.
Evidence of a reddish basil dates back to the 1830s, when the English botanist George Bentham first discovered an ‘opal’ strain of the plant. It wasn’t until 1950, however, that a genuine red/purple basil cultivar was created: The Dark Opal. Red Rubin Basil is a new, improved variant of this cultivar, having larger, more deeply purple leaves and being less prone to areas of green developing.
