Thai Basil – 300 Seeds
Mr. FotherGill’s from Italy
Thai Basil is a member of the mint family. It is a perennial herb that grows to an average of 30 to 45 centimeters in height and spreads about 30 centimeters wide. Thai Basil offers a robust, sweet yet spicy anise-like flavor.
The narrow, bright-green leaves have serrated edges and are typically smaller and sturdier than those of common sweet basil. Thai Basil leaves, flowers, and stems are all edible and offer a bold flavor with spicy-sweet notes of anise and black licorice.
They also boast a fresh and spicy fragrance and sometimes have a slight purple tint. When the plant matures, spikes of lavender to dark-violet flowers grow at the tops of the reddish-purple stems.
Thai Basil plants are Asian variety of sweet basil known for their spicier flavor and ability to withstand high cooking temperatures.
