Kapoor Tulsi Basil OG
Ocimum tenuiflorum Open-pollinated. A superior strain of Tulsi or Sacred basil, with a more compact growth habit and more pungent sweet flavor. Native to India and used in Indian and Thai cuisine. Spicier than other basils and quicker to go to seed, but still usable when covered with purple flowers. Used in Ayurvedic medicine as a poultice on acne, ringworm, eczema and insect bites. Makes a tasty tea, a Fedco staff favorite at break time, for it strengthens the immune system and increases oxygen uptake in the brain. Plants stand a bit more cold than other basils.
