Thai Basil - 6 Plants - Streambank Gardens

Thai Basil Plants

  • $ 6.95

Thai basil is full of anise flavor that compliments numerous Asian dishes.  The anise flavor isn't so over powering, as you might imagine, and the subtle hint of licorice is a nice addition to pesto.  The leaves have a lower moisture content than some basil; which translates to a quick cure time for dried basil.  The bold blooms and purple hued leaves are great for those ornamental borders as well.
