Holy Basil Seeds (Tulsi), or Green Holy Basil (Ocimum Tenuiflorum), Open Pollinated, Non-GMO
20 seeds per package

Known as the Queen of Herbs in India. This type of holy basil is also known as kapoor, or temperate basil. The most beautiful aroma, frost-tolerance, and fast-growing. Its health-promoting properties are said to help combat stress and other medical concerns. Makes a very nice herb tea and just to smell the wonderful aroma in my garden. I love it! It will be a staple in my garden for now on. It did very well in my patio pots. If allowed to flower, it is a bee magnet and it may reseed.
