Sacred Basil

Sacred Basil


Ocimum africanum


A very productive and fast growing selection, it’s also called temperate tulsi since it thrives in the cooler months. A compact, bushy plant with small leaves and purple flowers, it has a powerfully aromatic fragrance that has been described as tutti-fruiti. One of the favorite basils for making tea. Buds are also sprinkled on salads.
