An excellent Thai Basil variety packed with warm clove-like flavor! Sturdy lavender stems and flowers and deep purple flower bracts, with medium sized leaves that vary in shades of green and dusky purple. Flavor is sweet yet spicy. Excellent for culinary use in curries, salads, stir-fry’s and more. Height 20″.
Basil prefers consistently moist, rich soil and does not tolerate drought. To increase branching and leaf production, pinch back flower buds as they form. Harvest in early morning and store unwashed and refrigerated to avoid brown spots and wilting. Flowers are attractive to bees and make good cut flowers.
