Also known as sacred basil or tulsi. This plant originates from Thailand, where it is grown around Buddhist temples. It has a very pungent rich aroma and is traditionally used in Thai cooking, such as stir-fries or chicken, pork and beef dishes. The Indian-related form is considered holy by the Hindus and sacred to the gods. It is used in many religious ceremonies.
Plant somewhere sheltered from the wind in rich, fertile soil in full sun.
