Kapoor Tulsi (Ocimum tenuiflorum) is a compact, green leaved holy basil native throughout subtropical and tropical Asian geographies. Kapoor produces sweet tasting foliage ideal for making tea; it’s the most frequently grown of the holy basil types, and is easy to grow and works well in container gardens.
Plants grow up to two feet tall and are typically grown as annuals in most temperate climates, but the perennial nature of the plant means it can overwinter in warmer winter climates (Zone 10).
Seeds are certified organic by Oregon Tilth.
