Tulsi, Krishna — Holy Basil, Shyama Tulasi (Ocimum tenuiflorum) in a 9 inch pot, organic


Please note:  These are extra-sized tender perennial Krishna tulsi plants in deep pots.

Family:  Mint (Lamiaceae)

Hardy to Zones 10 to 12, otherwise grown as a potted plant and brought in for the winter

(Tea basil from India, Shyama Tulasi, Krishna Tulsi) Perennial tea basil originally from India.  The plants are grown at our farm here in the USA, in seclusion, in order to produce the seed offered here.  An outstanding cultivar for producing the true tropical-type tulsi tea (as opposed to tea of temperate tulsi).  Leaves dark purple.  Many people prefer this dark-colored cultivar.  According to ancient folklore, the Tulsi (tulasi) plant is a manifestation of the Divine Mother on Earth, for the benefit of all creation.  Tastes good and provides gentle stimulation to body, mind and spirit. Growing tea basils brings many blessings to the household!  The tea made from this plant is very satisfying, with taste and aroma most appealing.   Traditional usage (Ayurveda): stress, anxiety, heart disease, arthritis, diabetes, and dementia.  Drinking tulsi tea in the morning is a fantastic way to get started.  If you want to be an herbalist and are afraid you might tell somebody to take the wrong thing, then tell them to drink tulsi tea and you will be right every time.  Plant prefers a warm garden exposure, with rich yet well-drained soil and frequent watering.  Space plants 2 feet apart.  If growing indoors, give at least 6 hours of light daily, do not overwater, and make sure there is good air exchange to keep the plant healthy.  Space plants 2 feet apart.
