This guy I've had for over a year now. He's originally just a propagated clipping of a neighbors rather unhealthy plant, but since transplantation into my new garden six weeks ago, he's gone crazy with new growth. It looks like it's store bought with all its abundance of completely full, oversized stalks. With big,shiny healthy leaves and an even bigger flavor, this is my most in-demand herb when I am invited to dinners with my friends and family. Nobody ever forgets to remind me to bring this!
