This cousin of green basil is a potent flavor bomb! Similar to purple Thai basil, this purple Iranian basil, often called Persian Basil, is pungent, floral and a rich purple color. 


It is amazing chopped up on top of any dish as a powerful punch of flavor. If you are basil fan, you will love this. 


Sow the seeds just like basil or tulsi - meaning sprinkled on the top of your soil mix and kept moist. They will germinate quickly, within 1 week. They grow taller and leaner than green basil and are more hardy to drought. 


All the seeds by The Odd Gumnut (TOG) are handpicked and heirloom, meaning you only need to buy this packet of seeds once, after that you can collect your own seed from the plant you grow.
