Basil seeds

Zone 02726 | Anonymous added on March 19, 2018 | Answered

With Basil Seeds, how many generation of seeds can I go before the seeds from that plant make a poor quality basil plant. The seeds I\'m going to plant this year are from a second generation basil plant. If I use these 2nd generation seeds will I have good basil plant to make pesto and tomato sauce? Thank you Ken Souza email: 2012souza37@gmail.com
