Tulsi Kapoor Basil


Ocimum tenuiflorum.

Annual. An Indian basil famous for its delicious flavor and sacred reputation in the Hindu faith. Also known as "holy basil," tulsi is considered an "adaptogen", meaning it is thought to be a general health tonic. It contains vitamins A and C, along with calcium, zinc, and iron, and other beneficial nutrients. It is used traditionally in the treatment of ailments ranging from bronchitis to malaria to arthritis. We love this plant and dry it for our winter tea! The scent is so profuse when this plant is touched we like it for pots and harvesting it is a dream!

GROWING TIPS: Transplant in healthy plant starts after danger of last frost, or direct seed 1/4 inch deep. Plant spacing could be 12-14 inches.
