What are the pros? Perfect for Thai cooking

What are the cons? Slow to start

Review:

These plants did great in the container garden on my urban rooftop. I stared the seeds indoors in February and the seedlings were so small and delicate at first. I had my doubts about whether they would survive when I transplanted them outside. My building's rooftop is super windy and has an extreme of temperatures - very chilly in the Spring and blazingly hot in Summer. But after a while, these guys took off and grew into a beautiful, flourishing bush. It helps to harvest often, as this seemed to encourage new shoots and less bolting. I grew another Thai basil variety (Siam Queen) and these leaves were much more tender and tasty. They lasted well into the Fall, too. I will definitely be growing them again next season.

Review:

I started this via winter sowing but it took a while to grow. Plants were small for a long time. But when they picked up they really did! I am drying basil right and left and I have tons of it. Love it! Excellent anise flavor.

Review:

Did I mention that it is flavorful? I have grown several of the varieties offered on this website and this one I like the best. I use it in salads, sandwiches, curries. I even chop them up and add to the meat when making meatballs.

Review:

I REALLY recommend this if you like cooking. It is an unusual herb, so guests are really impressed by it, it is very easy to grow and has very low maintenance (we went away for 3 weeks and when we returned they where huge), I pinched them when they where small (15cm aprox) so they grew really bushy and beautiful. It is excellent for soups, tea and so many thai recipes. It also flowers a lot so it is easily reseeded.

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...
