Sweet Thai Organic Basil. Try it as a flavorful garnish for sweet dishes. Green, 2″ long leaves have a spicy, anise-clove flavor. Attractive purple stems and blooms.
Grow in fall, spring, summer with temps 70°F or more and night temps above 50°F.
Begin light harvesting after plants have become established. It is best done in the early morning when the temperature is cooler and the leaves are less likely to wilt. A full harvest should be completed just before the plants start to flower. Cut the entire plant 4-6″ above rockwool to promote a second growth. Leaves are easily bruised when picking, so handle carefully. Do not store at a temperature less than 50°F (10°C).
