Holy Basil or Tulsi (Kapoor)
Tulsi makes a wonderful, aromatic tea. Best flavor if leaves are picked before the plant flowers, but you can keep picking the leaves until frost. The light purple flowers are quite beautiful and very attractive to pollinators. Unlike other varieties of Tulsi which require a longer growing season, this variety (Kapoor) grows especially well in temperate climates like New England. 60 days.
