Basil?

22/05/2012 at 20:31

Chinese greens that are getting a bit leggy?

Do you mean something like pak choi dovefromabove

I would have said it looks like basil but haven't grown Chinese greens. Try rubbing the leaves and smelling it, you'll know if it's basil by the smell.

Something like pak choi or one of the many variants possibly from a mix of salad leaves - that's my best guess

Looks like basil

I would say definitely not basil, agree it looks more brassica like, perhaps self seeded from previous spicy salad mix or such-like?
