Lemon Basil is a hybrid of African and regular basil and is therefore resistant to the late season mildew that usually spells the end to Basil. This is used extensively in Laos or Indonesian cooking. Red Wagon Herbs are typically packed in cellophane bags, but occaissionally they are packaged in plastic clamshells. The plastic clamshells they use are made from 100% post consumer plastic made by Packaging 2.0, a company that donates a percentage of its proceeds every year to ocean clean up. Certified Organic
