Dec. 18, 2014, West Chicago — PanAmerican Seed is celebrating a 2015 All-America Selections national award for Herb Basil Dolce Fresca. This win continues the company’s national recognition for high-quality vegetable and herb breeding.

“PanAmerican Seed is thrilled to accept this award for Dolce Fresca, which performed great in trials nationwide,” said Josh Kirschenbaum, product manager for PanAmerican Seed.

“Obtaining the All-America Selections distinction is an honor, and the award further cements our goal to provide high-quality vegetable and herb genetics to growers and make home gardeners successful.”


Herb Basil Dolce Fresca is a sweet Italian leaf basil with a tidy appearance on a unique bushy habit. It resists the urge to grow tall or leggy, and still delivers traditional basil leaf size and flavour. It performs well in gardens and patio containers, and is sure to please kitchen gardeners next season.

As a 2015 AAS winner, seed for Herb Basil Dolce Fresca is available now for immediate sale. For further plant information and culture details, visit
