Basil question

I just bought this basil today at Target. Ive never seen it packaged like this! My question is do you think if i planted it, in a container, would it grow? Thanks

I've replanted cut rosemary from the supermarket, and it caught and grew (barely tho). I would imagine that basil would grow without too much effort at all.

If you see any blooms popping up on the tops cut them off immediately. The bloom tells the plant "it's done" and by removing the bloom you are telling it to keep producing. Wash and dry the blooms and pour a little bit of olive oil on them and either make a vinaigrette in a couple days or chop it up with a bit of garlic, kosher salt, add some olive oil, and dip bread...a splash of balsamic would work too in this.
