Tulsi, Temperate — Holy Basil (Ocimum sp) potted plant, organic

$7.50 $5.00

Family:  Mint (Lamiaceae)

Annual, harvest at 40 days and ongoing to frost

(Temperate Tulsi)  The plant is a bushy annual tea basil with small leaves, purple flowers and a tutti-frutti fragrance. Among all basils in my experience, this one is (surprisingly) the shortest season, most frost-hardy cultivar. I’ve also seen these self-seed the following year, which is unusual among basils. 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.
