Product description

Thai basil is an essential ingredient in South Asian cuisine. It is a must-have ingredient for the Vietnam beef noodle soup (Pho Bo), and the main spice for the famous Chicken Pad Thai. Although its name sounds tropical, it adapts well to the American Northeast summers. Start seeds indoor three weeks early in containers; or direct sow after the danger of the frost has lifted. The Thai basil produces a distinct cinnamon flavor that goes well with many meat and fish dishes. The taste of Thai basil is stronger than Italian sweet basil. Its purple stems and flowers are not only spicy, but are also aesthetic.
