Review:

Holy Kaprao, this one took a long time to come up. I had almost given up. I planted 6 varieties with the Genovese blazing ahead of the rest (of course). Same water, same soil, same exposure and planted the same day. This one took two more weeks to come up! But the scent alone is worth the wait. Do NOT give up! Decent germination when direct sown. Delicious :)

Review:

Thai "Gaprao" Basil is fantastic and easy to grow, especially in warm climates. It will keep as a perennial if you have a greenhouse (or south-facing window) that won't freeze through the winter. I have not bought seeds from the website so I can't remark on the germination rate. But what I can say is that it's a must have for anyone who wants to try their hand at Thai cooking. Look up recipes online for Thai fried basil and chili (usually with pork but can also be with chicken or tofu). In Thai = "Pad Gapao Moo". Delicious!

Review:

So glad I didn't read the reviews before buying. I directed seeded into a large pot on my deck in the spring. They heavily germinated and I have had beautiful Bai Kraphao all summer. Sadly they are about done now that the days are short and the sun is low. I especially enjoyed them with beef and long green beans!

Review:

Having lived in Chiang Mai, Thailand for 6 years, I really wanted this Basil to make some of the dishes I enjoyed there. I have tried for the past 3 years to get this to germinate...but no luck. So sad.

Review:

I was really looking forward to this basil, as I love Thai food. I had about a 1% sprout rate in the greenhouse, zero direct seeded in the beds. I will probably try again, will let you know.
