TULSI (Holy Basil) SEED SET (5 seed packets): Amrita, Krishna, Rama, Temperate & Vana, organic

$12.90

Family:  Mint (Lamiaceae)

Amrita, Krishna, Rama and Vana are perennial, Hardy to zone 10 t0 12.  Temperate tulsi is an annual.

The TULSI set consists of five full sized packets of Holy Basil (Tulsi) used to make the health-promoting tea in ayurvedic medicine. These are: The lovely intermediate Amrita Tulsi (Ocimum tenuiflorum), the green Rama Tulsi (Ocimum tenuiflorum), the purple Krishna (Shyama) Tulsi (Ocimum tenuiflorum), the large leaved perennial bush basil Vana Tulsi (Ocimum gratissimum) and the easy-to-grow green-leaved Temperate Tulsi (Ocimum sp.).

Prepare a flat of potting soil or a fine seedbed in spring and scatter seeds on surface, then press in and keep evenly moist and warm until germination, which is rapid.  Tropical types (Rama, Vana, Krishna, Amrita) are best started in strong light in very warm conditions.  The temperate tulsi will germinate on a windowsill.  Transplant or thin to 1 foot apart.  Regarding the temperate tulsi (previously misnomered “Kapoor”), we tested this cultivar and confirmed the eugenol marker.  This is the holy basil my wife and I grow for ourselves to make into tea.  We find it very satisfying, with 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.
