What are the pros? Prolific, pest deterrent, heat

What are the cons? nothing

Review:

I recommend this herb all the time. IT grows prolifically here in Phoenix, in full brutal sun with little water. It will bloom with a wild flower like beauty for months on end. It even survived the mild winter and is going for another round. It also self seeds prolifically, which I don't mind as I dig it up and use it in all my garden beds as a pest deterring companion plant. That's right, bugs do not eat this guy and his smelly compounds repel lots of things away from other nearby delicate edibles. Plus the bees love this stuff. My plants grew about 2 feet tall and 3 feet wide in a giant ball like shape with woody trunks- they were in enriched chop and drop soil with lots of worms. The herbs planted in lesser quality soil still did very well, but only grew about 1.5 feet tall, 2 feet wide. The only negative.... what on earth can I use all this Thai Basil for? You'll be giving it away in large baskets...

What are the pros? Great for Thai cooking

What are the cons? None

Review:

I started these seeds late last winter, and ended up with about 8 plants. I cook a lot of Thai food, and still could have gotten by with one or two plants... they ended up about three feet high and two feet in diameter! The Thai basil plants that I grew in the past after purchasing locally didn't prepare me for this year's bounty. This basil is great in stir-fries and even cocktails. Flowers early but doesn't seem to lose flavor like some other basils. Bees love it.

Review:

I tried this out last summer. Licorice flavor/scent for sure. I didn't find many culinary uses for it, as I prefer the sweet basil. It did however, produce beautiful purple and white flowers. I let most go to seeds and will use that to replant more next year, primarily for it's flowers moreso than eating.

Review:

I germinated these in mid-April. I kept 6 seedlings. We were hit hard by stink bugs this year. This basil and the Thai long bean #2 were the only plants that sailed through it. Bees and hummingbirds love the purple spiky blooms. The blooms last for at least 2 months (mine are still in bloom). Some of my plants grew well over 3 feet tall. The flavor is of sweet licorice and is a fantastic addition to homemade tomato sauce.
