Basil, Indian Subja [Barbari Tulsi]

Notify Me

Babari Tulsi. This is another cultivar, in our growing collection of medicinal Basils, which is found throughout India. The seeds are used in a milk based drink called "falooda". The soaked seeds add a cooling effect to the drink and increase the strength of those who drink it. It has been used medicinally to expel worms, aid digestion and clear bronchial congestion. This lovely medicinal Basil can reach 3 to 4 feet in good soil with bright green foliage contrasting with the purple flower heads. Very attractive in the herbscape and great for attracting bees and other pollinators. Annual. Zone 10

Latin Name Ocimum basilicum subja
