Do your hands turn black when cutting frest basil?

yes be cause all the fluids all ready capture ur hand

Another response:

No, normally fresh green basil does not turn one's hands black. (Some of the purple or "black" varieties - such as "Black Opal" - theoretically could have this effect, but that is doubtful.) You might want to be careful that the herb you are cutting is actually basil, which is easily identified by its fragrance.
