Basil Thai
Siam Queen

(Ocimum basilicum citriodorum)

Thai basil is known to the Vietnamese as "Hung Que" (and eaten raw with noodle soup in the morning) and in Thailand as "Horapha". Siam Queen basil is a distinct improvement over old Thai basils; the yields are impressive because the leaves are twice the size of other Thai basils - 3" to 4" long by 1.5" to 2" wide. Acompact plant with beautiful pink & purple flowers on red-purple stems makes Siam Queen a very attractive container variety. This packet plants 1 - 8 foot row.
