Sweet Basil Grown Year-Round in Calgary, AB

NuLeaf’s Sweet Basil is grown year-round and is a classic staple for our farm and almost every kitchen. These tender and aromatic leaves add the perfect flavor profile to your family favorite recipes. Add a sweet and smooth basil taste to your pasta sauces, marinades, rubs, and salads.

This member of the mint family is thought to have originated in India however due to its medicinal and culinary popularity it’s use quickly spread across many cultures.  Perhaps best known for use in Italian cuisine, sweet basil makes for a perfect pairing with tomatoes and cheeses or used with olive oil, cheese and nuts to make homemade pesto.

This herb has a special place in the history of NuLeaf Farms.  In the year leading up to our creation, the founders of NuLeaf had begun building a series of  prototypes to best understand how to create and design our turnkey vertical farms.  While we experimented with  many crop types, it was sweet basil that was our first crop to be grown year-round and also our first commercially available product which was sold to grocers and restaurants.

    Pristine, fresh, and flavourful, with big leaves just like in the picture. Perfect for pesto.

  2. Rebecca Parama

    Amazing fresh basil. Incredible smell and very flavorful. Lasts well on the counter because it is so incredibly fresh!

  3. Lindsay Mandry (verified owner)

    The best basil. So fresh. The leaves are huge, full, fragrant, and never any wilted or browning leaves like you’d get from grocery store basil.
