I have a packet of seeds labeled only: "crfincr". Any idea what they might be?

A clue in how this name is constructed is given in another packet labeled "baswlk" which means "basil (wilkinson's)".

I've planted them and they're coming up very slowly, with small frilly leaves.

  • the package must have been printed using a DOS program (8 letter limit)

  • Yeah I guessed as much, but the question is "what", not "why".
