Ocimum basilicum  Thai

This basil has a sweet and warm flavour with hints of aniseed and liquorice. 

Thai basil tastes sweeter and warmer than regular basil. In addition to aniseed and liquorice, some describe the taste as peppery and cinnamon-like. Creative chefs are particularly fond of Thai basil and with its gorgeous, dark green, fragrant leaves, it’s especially beautiful. Thai basil is more resistant to heat than regular basil, making it a great spice for soups and sauces.  

If you want to try something really different, slip some Thai basil leaves inside your wallet – it is said to bring good fortune!

Product information

Category: Herb
Growing time: 5-8 weeks
Cutting and harvesting: Pinch the top to maintain growth
Package includes: 3 plant capsules + nutrients 

Thai basil sprouts quickly, in 5-6 days. The first leaves grow in a few weeks. Growth accelerates about a month after sowing. It is advisable to start cutting basil early. When the plant is about 4-8 cm high, cut the top pair of leaves. 

From then on, harvest by cutting the stem just above the pair of leaves below. This will encourage new branches and thicker growth, producing more leaves to harvest. It’s possible to cut a lot of basil in one go, so long as you always leave at least one or two pairs of leaves on the plant. If basil grows too tall, it can be cut at the middle, or even lower.
