Basil - Thai - Ocimum basilicum

Annual Thai basil is a key ingredient in Asian cuisine, offering a sweet, anise, clove flavor. Green leaves on purple stems with purple flowers. Grows well in containers.

Soil and Water: Plant in full sun in well-draining soil. Basil does not require fertile soil, however it performs best when organic matter is added. Provide even water throughout development.

Planting and Growing: Start seeds indoors 4-6 weeks before the last frost, or sow directly once soil temperatures have reached at least 70°F. Pinch ends during development for a bushy plant. Basil has a very low germination rate; it is not uncommon to have germination rates of 60%. Sow heavily and thin to the most vigorous seedlings. Basil will not perform below 50°F; pot indoors during winter for a year-round supply.

Harvesting and Storage: Regular harvesting will keep production high. Use leaves fresh or frozen. Remove flower stalks to extend harvest. Be sure to harvest prior to first frost.
