Holy Basil (Tulsi) - 50 seeds (Ocimum africanum) SM


( / )

Please select all options.

Family: Mint (Lamiaceae). Annual, harvest at 40 days and ongoing to frost. For the purpose of seed-saving, it takes 120 days from direct-seeding to winnowing.

Plant Description: This temperate tulsi is great for those wishing to grow their own tulsi tea and is more hardy than the tropical-type tulsis. The germination is far easier, the growth faster, the productivity greater, and the overall experience more likely to bring happiness.

The plant is a bushy annual tea basil with small leaves and purple flowers, powerfully aromatic. This plant is of East African origin, and India is right across the way. Among all basils this one is the shortest season, most frost-hardy cultivar. It may also self-seed over the seasons, which is unusual among basils.

Traditional usage (Ayurveda): stress, anxiety, heart disease, arthritis, diabetes, and dementia. Drinking tulsi tea in the morning is a fantastic way to get started.  *CONSULT A PROFESSIONAL FOR MEDICAL USE. NEVER CONSUME PLANTS WITHOUT PROPER ID* 

Growing Instructions: Prepare a flat of potting soil or a fine seedbed in spring and scatter seeds on surface, then press in and keep evenly moist and warm until germination, which is rapid. Transplant or thin to 1 foot apart.

Packet contains 50 seeds. Certified Organically Grown.
