Thai Basil

Thai Basil (Ocimum basilicum) produces dark green/purple arrow shaped foliage with a captivating anise/licorice aroma and flavor. This is an easy to grow variety that’s compact (to 24" tall) and very productive. Thai Basil can be harvested and eaten fresh in salads or stir-fries or dried for use in roasts and stews. Pinch the purple flowering tops to encourage continuous production. Alternately, allow to flower to bring the pollinators; basil makes an excellent bee forage!

Thai Basil is an perennial plant that is grown as an annual in most temperate climates. Will produce harvestable leaves approximately 70 days from seeding.

Seeds are certified organic.
