Siam Queen Basil

Out of stock

The Basil Thai Siam Queen, 'Ocimum basilicum citriodorum', is a 1997 All-America Selection. The Siam Queen has a delicious sweet and spicy flavor.

The leaves are very aromatic with a licorice basil aroma. Thai Basil is known to the Vietnamese as "Hung Que", and eaten raw with noodle soup and in Thailand as "Horapha".

The Siam Queen Thai Basil has leaves that are twice the size of other Thai Basils. The compact plant has beautiful pink and purple flowers on red purple stems which makes this basil a great container plant.

Basil is used in so many foods; it is hard to mention them all. It is used in Italian foods and pesto and pasta sauces.

Fresh basil makes a nice tea, excellent vinegar, and tastes great fresh with fish, poultry, rice, mild vegetables, eggplant and many others.

Plant 1 to 2 weeks after the last average frost date.
