about fresh basil

I have summerlong and lemon lime basil growing. I was wondering, when can you tell they are ready to use?

Hi, You can use basil any time you feel like it, but you probably want the plants to be a decent size before you start pulling leaves off the plant. But, you can harvest every day if you want to. I just would not do that if these are tiny, new plants, but if they are established and healthy, you can pluck leaves at any time.
