(80-100 days. Ocimum sanctum) Tulsi in all aspects and places is holier than holy. Where the breeze blows through Tulsi plants, it makes the surrounding areas pure. Kapoor is the best Holy Basil for temperate gardens. It acts like an annual, and is even known to self-seed in temperate climates, which is quite unusual for basil. Adaptogenic, immune enhancing, antifungal and antibacterial. Eat one fresh leaf daily, or pick the leaves and flowers and dry them and make the tea. Most excellent! Kapoor is easiest of all Tulsi types to grow in temperate gardens and is highly aromatic. Kapoor has been grown in the US for about 30 years. It has been grown in India since ancient times.
