Basil Thai Siam Queen [64355]

Basil Thai Siam Queen

Ocimum basilicum

Siam Queen adds an entirely new and delicious level of seasoning to any dish.



Sturdy stems support extra-large, bright-green leaves. Clusters of small, intensely coloured deep purple flowers appear on the very top of the plant giving a highly ornamental effect. Your dilemma will be whether to grow it for cuisine or for beauty! Unlike the sweet basils we are familiar with in Italian cuisine and pesto, this Thai basil has a strong anise flavour and a good spicy tang, while still presenting the familiar basil taste beneath these elements.
