A rare and exotic basil that can grow up to 6-8 feet tall! Ocimum gratissimum is a woody stemmed plant with lime green, slightly hairy soft leaves. The plant's extreme growth height is the reason for the name tree basil, however it is not a tree. Stems become woody as the plant matures, which often happens to herbs. Leaves are highly aromatic and have a sweet, spicy fragrance reminiscent of basil-clove. Popular as a spice in parts of East Asia, including India as well as in Africa. Grows well as a perennial in warm and Mediterranean-type climates or as an annual in colder areas. Tree basil is primarily grown in southeast Asia and parts of Africa. It is a frost tender plant, best suited for tropical to semitropical climates as a perennial and in other areas as an annual. Tree basil is a full sun plant which requires temperatures above 50 degrees F to thrive, but grows best at temperatures closer to 75-80 degrees. Tree basil is found growing wild and is popular in cultivation. Also known as Clove Basil and in Hawaii as Wild Basil. Tree basil is used most often in teas, but its white flowers may also be added to salads. The tea is said to have numerous herbal medicine properties derived from the essential oils. The oil is imported as a substitute for clove oil or thyme oil. The oil is also used as an insect repellent in its native regions. The essential oil contains eugenol and shows some evidence of antibacterial activity and has potential for use as a food preservative. *Extended handling time (up to 4 business days) may apply to this item depending on what day you place your order.
