WHAT WE GROW

HERBS

Fresh aromas for every cusine!

From African Blue Basil to Vietnamese Coriander, we have a wide assortment of herbs to uniquely flavor every dish. Available herbs vary by season– during the summer we focus on heat-loving herbs from Mexico and Thailand to then switch to cool-season herbs from England and France.

Fresh aromas for every cusine!

HERBS

 
Hierba Buena
The original mojito mint you'll want in all your drinks. Similar to spearmint but with a sweet, refreshing fragrance of its own. Stands out in both sweet and savory dishes; great in marinades and dressings.
Savory
Probably the lesser known of the five herbs de Provence– thyme, rosemary, lavender, and marjoram. Savory is reminiscent of thyme but with a spicer almost pungent fragrance.
Orange Mint
A mint cultivar with bright citrus aroma and lavender undertones. Known by many names– bergamot mint, lime mint, and water mint. Excellent in raw dishes, vinegars, and marinades.
Lemon Thyme
Has the savory scent of thyme combined with a bright citrus aroma. Compliments lamb, poultry, and tomatoes; transforms roasted vegetables.
Green Pepper Basil
Unusual variety from South America with a spicy scent reminiscent of green peppercorns. Stands up well to being cooked.
Holy Thai Basil
A Thai basil variety with a musky, sweet aroma and large delicate leaves. More pungent and not as sweet when compared to Thai magic basil. Best eaten fresh, breaks down easily.
Dark Opal Basil
A versatile sweet basil that adds color and bright flavor to drinks and dressings. Muddle with sugar and lime for a pink lemonade you'll be drinking all summer.
Peruvian Basil
A distinctly pungent basil native to the Amazons, also known as sweet wild basil. Adds depth to soups and stews. It shares essential oils with both basil and thyme.
Mrs. Burns Lemon Basil
A cultivar from New Mexico with intense citrus aroma shines in sorbets, vinegars, and summer cocktails. No other variety has such a bright, lemony fragrance. Compliments fish and chicken well.
