New! Classic Genovese appearance plus downy mildew resistance. Prospera® is an exciting new release from the breeders of the popular Aroma 2 basil. Part of the newest generation of basil bred for improved downy mildew resistance, flavor, and appearance, this classic Genovese type is very similar to Aroma 2, with 3″ long glossy, dark green leaves and Fusarium resistance — and the added benefit of strong resistance to downy mildew. Prospera’s Genovese aroma is slightly milder and earthier than that of Aroma 2.
