B&B Basil began as a father and daughter team in 2000. After noticing a lack of locally grown herb products
at the Melbourne fruit and vegetable market, George Bobin and Susie Young decided it was time to begin something new and started growing large Hydroponic Basil in pots. Their products were an instant hit at
the markets and the demand for their high quality herbs have only grown from there.
Micro-herbs otherwise known as Microgeens, are edible greens produced from vegetables, herbs or
other plants. They are sprouted seeds in the 1st stage of growth just before the "true" leaf appears.
Generally between 2 and 5cm in height when used (this can vary depending on the variety). Although
Micro-herbs are not fully grown their flavour can be quite intense compared to their delicate leafage and appearance. Micro-greens have become common place in fine dining restaurants, used to enhance the
visual appearance of a dish.
