ELIDIA

« Back

ELIDIA is a Genovese basil with intermediate resistance to fusarium - making it an ideal choice for hydroponic, potted herb production. ELIDIA is of medium vigour and can be grown through all seasons in hydroponic situations. ELIDIA produces even leaf numbers all the way down the leaf so the plant does not have a stalky stem appearance. ELIDIA can also be grown for fresh market due to its even growth and disease resistance in the changeable conditions of Autumn when fusarium can limit production.
