Days to Harvest
continuous harvest after 40–50 days
Cut anywhere from one-third to two-thirds of the plant, leaving just enough for regeneration; this gives an abundance of basil leaves and prolongs the growing period. Flavor will peak when flowers first form. Removing flower heads will prolong harvest.
