Welcome Purple Basil!
I finally got it! After months and months of searching for a purple basil, I finally found one! Yey! But I must say it's not as exciting as I figured it would be. Why? Well, the leaves aren't exactly purple. The undersides of mature leaves are purple, but on top it's all green. Supposedly, those leaves should turn purple over time as well. Only time will tell. In the meantime, I'll have to keep taking pictures of the undersides only. I can't wait to propagate this plant! I'll give away half my cinnamons so I have space. And imagine how cool that would be if I cooked purple pesto. Here are a couple of pictures as proof.
