Rutgers Devotion (DMR – Downy Mildew Resistant). Authentic flavor and appearance. This Genovese-type basil is compact, but highly productive. Leaves are large, cupped, and medium green. Slightly sweet and spicy aroma. Allows for many harvests over growing season. Works well in a container or in the garden. Height: 12-14 inches. Rutgers developed and bred this basil using traditional breeding, including the crossbreeding of thousands of plants. This variety is not GMO. There’s no genetic engineering at all – just good old-fashioned creative plant breeding. We’re excited to offer it.
