Description


Thai Basil has small sturdy leaves that hold up well to high-heat cooking, purple stems, and delicate, edible violet flower spikes that make the whole plant look like a lavender bush when allowed to fully bloom.

The spicy clove-anise flavor brings an earthy essence to pesto, Thai curries, stir fries, citrus salads, and cocktails. Elegant in cut flower arrangements, too.

Harvest the leaves and stems from the top part of the plant, and pinch off edible flower buds as they appear, which prevents the leaves from turning bitter, and signals the plant to branch out and grow more leaves, making a bushier plant.

The more you harvest, the more it grows!

  • Spicy clove-anise flavor
