Genovese Basil (Ocimum Basilicum) is also known as Sweet Basil and originally comes from Genoa, Savona and Imperia. It is the preferred basil in cooking pesto (from the word pestâ which literally means to crush) and Genoese sauce is a mix of pestâ basil, olive oil, parmesan & sardinian pecorino cheese, pine nuts, salt and garlic. The people of Italy have been using this basil since the 16th century.
Easy to grow and a good companion in the garden, basil is best used fresh but can be dried down for use as a dry herb. If you want to cook with it, add it during the end of the preparation.

CHADWICK CHERRY TOMATOES
These tomatoes are both juicy and prolific. The sweet flavour of the tiny 1.5″ round fruits is considered by some to be the best flavour of medium-sized cherry tomatoes. They are great for just popping in your mouth or for salads. These tomatoes come with a pedigree and story. The late Alan Chadwick from England developed these prolific and juice tomatoes. This variety is considered one of the best tasting in the medium sized cherry tomatoes.

A quick word from Le Noyau :
Growing up near Senneville, I was surrounded by farms, forest, ponds and nature! This beautiful childhood allowed me to develop my love for the outdoors, permaculture and seeds. Our family moved out of the city of Montreal 5 years ago to come to the beautiful village of Frelighsburg to start our seed adventure. Now we have finally settled down on our new 5 acre farm in Stanbridge East where we practice organic gardening and learn from Indigenous seed savers traditional gardening practices. We work with open pollinated and heirloom seeds and offer the highest quality products. We are stewards for the seeds and the land and we take pride in knowing that each seed we send to you is filled with love.
From our family to yours,
Teprine, Jocelyn, Monroe and Bowie
