Distinctly fragrant tulsi basil that we have long used as a salad enhancer. The whole leaves are crisp and clove flavored, very cooling in summer salad. The immature bite-sized buds and their subtending pair of leaves are a beautiful topping for salad or desserts. Excellent pollen and nectar source for bees We've grown this old Abundant Life Seed strain since 1983. Much better adapted to cool weather than other basils, especially the tropical Sacred basil, O. tenuiflorum. Makes a terrific herbal tea. One of our favorite plants. Yes. Try It.
