We grow our plants in Zurich, using existing industrial space for our Vertical Farm. Our plants can develop in perfect conditions all year around. We offer a wide variety of freshly grown, healthy plants – without using pesticides. Circular systems for energy and nutrients reduce our need for resources to a minimum.
Basil's brother from Southeast Asia has more robust leaves. They remain more vibrant during cooking compared to sweet basil, which is usually added to the dish before serving. It has a slightly spicy, liquorice-like flavour. On the outside, Thai Basil has a darker stem and small, sturdy leaves with serrated edges.
Our Italian Basil is sweet and vibrant in its flavour. Perfect for summoning the scents of Italy straight onto your homemade dishes. We love it as a garnish on our pizzas and salads, or just as the real star of the dish in a delicious pesto.
Our Greek Basil is the younger Mediterranean sibling of the common basil, with just a more distinctive flavour. Its stronger-tasting leaves are smaller, but all the better for dressing your Mediterranean dishes.
Our Shiso is the Japanese member of the mint family. Its large purple leaves produce a slightly bitter taste with hints of mint and cinnamon. We use it in many of our Asian dishes, especially to garnish tofu or fish. Mixed with soy sauce and sesame oil, it makes a delicious marinade for grilled chicken.
Within the basil family, our Lemon Basil is the more pungent sibling, and brings along a fresh citrus aroma. Perfect for making dishes light and zingy, it works well across Southeast Asian and Middle Eastern cuisines in curries and fish. We also love to combine it with fruits like papayas and berries for a fresh summer delight.
Coriander, the famous controversial herb - either loved or hated. We like to add this citrusy fragranced classic to our curries, salads and soups. It is frequently used in South American and Thai cuisine - especially to counterbalance the many spices.
Our Chives give your dips, salads, eggs and potato dishes an extra kick. As a milder version of onion and garlic flavour, they are usually perfectly enjoyable for everyone. They have a mild, sweet to savoury, pungent flavour.
As the name suggests, this chive-like herb has a strong garlic flavour. It is mainly used in Chinese and Japanese cuisine. The flavour especially enhances dishes where the food is slowly stewed in a sauce, such as in red-boiled stews, soups and for stuffings.
Our Lemon Verbena has a citrusy aroma and adds a refreshing lemon note to any tea. We also like to use the leaves to add a lemon flavour to fish and poultry dishes, vegetable marinades, salad dressings, jams, puddings, Greek yoghurt, and drinks.
Our Moroccan mint comes with bright green colouring and small, slightly jagged edges. It has a minty aroma and sweetish flavour. This wonderful blend is perfect for tea, especially the traditional Moroccan mint tea. Boiling water is poured over the torn or broken leaves, releasing the essential oils and aromas of mint. In addition, it has also been traditionally used for medicinal purposes for hundreds of years.
