Heirloom. Cinnamon basil, or "Cinnamon Basil," is a variety of basil (Ocimum basilicum) known for its distinct cinnamon fragrance and flavor. Here are some key points about this basil variety:
  1. Aroma and Flavor: Cinnamon basil has a strong and sweet cinnamon aroma and taste. This sets it apart from regular basil, which is known for its anise- or licorice-like flavor.

  2. Leaves: The leaves are typically bright green and may be slightly elongated compared to some other basil varieties. They are often smooth with slightly serrated edges.

  3. Uses: Cinnamon basil can be used in a variety of culinary applications, especially those where cinnamon notes are desired. It can be a wonderful addition to desserts, fruit salads, baked goods, and even certain savory dishes.

  4. Growing Conditions: Similar to other basil varieties, cinnamon basil prefers a sunny location and well-drained, moist soil. It is an annual plant that should be grown in warm climates or outdoors during the summer.

  5. Cultivation: Cinnamon basil has been cultivated specifically to provide a unique flavor and aroma experience. While it may not be as common as some other basil varieties, it is available in some gardening centers and seed stores.
