Thai Basil

August 19, 2013

Hey, check out this Thai basil!

Thai basil is the same species as the European basil you’re likely to find in an Italian restaurant, but a different cultivar. Its flavor is milder and sweeter, like mint. I’ve been growing these plants in a pot on my apartment building’s porch. I wasn’t expecting them to make such pretty purple flowers.

    While I’m not a fan of mint, those flowers do have a pulchritudinous purple color!
