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.
Linda Enerson, the farmer/owner of Ox and Robin, has been working with heirloom and rare seeds since 2011. After joining Seed Savers Exchange, a worldwide network of seed savers, she was hooked on exploring and preserving the wonderful qualities of heirloom vegetable and herb varieties, many of which surpass commonly available food crops in taste, disease resistance and aesthetic appeal.
In addition to raising crops, she also trains the oxen used as the main power source on the farm. Linda also creates the watercolor/collage artwork for every Ox and Robin seed label.
