Product Overview

Ocimum sp.

This revered ancient basil makes a healthful tea with a spicy, fruity aroma that is soothing to the mind and body.

Known as the Queen of Herbs in India, tulsi is considered to be sacred. This type of holy basil is also known as kapoor, or temperate basil. It is distinguished by its bubble-gum scent, frost-tolerance, and fast-growing nature. Its health-promoting properties are said to help combat stress and other medical concerns. If allowed to flower, it is a bee magnet and it may reseed. Grow indoors for a continuous supply of fresh leaves throughout the winter.

Variety Info

This green-leaved, purplish-pink flowered tulsi basil has the aroma of bubble gum, with a spicy, fruity flavor. It is also known as kapoor or temperate tulsi, and has yet to be identified with a scientific name.
