Ocimum basilicum - Thai

Thai basil has a sweeter, warmer flavour than common basil, with a hint of aniseed or licorice, and some say even pepper and cinnamon. These features make Thai basil a very alluring herb for the creative cook. Thai basil also pleases the eye with its dark green, fragrant leaves and dense growing habit. Thai basil can take the heat better than common basil, so you can add it to add flavor to Oriental soups and sauces. The obvious uses include also stir-fries and noodle dishes. The open-minded can search for Thai basil pesto recipes! Or put a Thai basil leaf into your wallet and wait: according to an old superstition, money will come.

 

Basil Thai Tips and Tricks

  • Sweet flavour with a hint of aniseed and liquorice
  • Basils germinate quite fast, in 5 to 6 days, and then continue growing slowly, but the growth speeds up about one month from sowing
  • Pinch off the tops of the plants when they are 3 weeks old, then you can also start harvesting some of the biggest leaves
  • Harvest by picking some of the biggest leaves and also young tops, then the plants will become bushier and the smaller plants receive more light
  • If the plants become too tall, you can cut them at the halfway or even lower
  • Recommended growing time is 6 to 8 weeks
