Description

Kapoor Tulsi or Holy basil is a flavorful herb and one of our favorite varieties of basil. Use fresh or dried in an array of medicinal and culinary applications. We love it freshly picked in tea with a sprig of mint.

Suggested Planting Requirements: Basil enjoys rich, light well-drained soil. Because of the heavy development of leaves, fertilizing is important and may be done organically with compost or manure. Keeping basil evenly moist will prevent bolting. You may add mulch to keep moisture levels even.

Growing Recommendations: This annual must be grown in full sun during spring and fall. Southern California growers may grow basil year-round in frost-free areas. For cooler areas, place basil in the warmest part of the yard. In hot climates, place in a cooler area near to the full sun.

Harvesting & Storing: Flavor in basil is at its best before it flowers, but you can still harvest well into the blooming period. To extend the life and flavor of a plant, continuously remove flowers as they appear. Watch our video on how to do this on YouTube.

Once the plant has gone to flower, don’t waste the opportunity to feed the pollinators! Flowering herbs can be a great addition to your pollinator or butterfly garden. Beneficial insects will enjoy the blooms!

Medicinal Uses: Tulsi is widely used in teas and infused oils to help with mild coughs and respiratory issues. Tulsi is an anti-inflammatory and can be used externally for mild skin conditions like dermatitis and position ivy.
