Basil - Organic Sweet Thai
Sweet Thai Basil (Ocimum basilicum) is a type of basil native to Southeast Asia that has been cultivated due to its taste and toughness. The Thai Basil has a licorice-like, slightly spicy flavor and can tolerate higher temperatures especially during cooking. The spicy flavor is reminiscent of Anise and Cloves and it goes well in curries and other Asian dishes. The Thai Basil plant has small, narrow leaves, purple stems, and pink-purple flowers.
