Krishna Tulsi is a tropical perennial that may be grown as an annual in temperate gardens.  The leaves' colour is green at first but eventually develops to a mottled purple, while the colour of the stems is primarily purple.  This is a preferred type grown in India

Rama Tulsi is originally from India–the primary type grown there. The purple plants stemmed with green leaves, sometimes tinted in purple, open form to 4 feet, flowers reddish-purple. Highly aromatic plant, testing high in both eugenol and rosmarinic acid.  If you want to be a herbalist and are afraid you might tell somebody to take the wrong thing, then ask them to drink tulsi tea, and you will be right every time. 

Vana Tulsi, African Basil, Vantulasi, Wild Holy Basil, Tree Basil) Perennial bush basil to 1.5m, native to India and East Africa, a wild species brought into cultivation.  The plants are woody-stemmed and overwinter indoors more readily than the other tulsi types—Source of eugenol (oil of clove).  The plant is handsome and aromatic, slightly hairy, green-leaved. It weighs up heavily as a garden-grown tea herb and may be used by itself or blended with leaves of other types of tulsi. 

Amrita Tulsi is a highly coloured selection of RAMA tulsi with a gentle fragrance and a high concentration of the anti-anxiety compound rosmarinic acid. This has proven to be a highly leaf productive strain that tends to hold well in the late summer and can be overwintered indoors. This seed came originally from AMMA's ashram in India (Amritapuri). "Amrita" is Sanskrit for "immortality" and is sometimes translated as "nectar."  Thus "nectar of immortality." According to ancient folklore, the Tulsi (Tulasi) plant is a manifestation of the Divine Mother on Earth for the benefit of all creation.  Tastes good and provides gentle stimulation to the body, mind, and spiritGrowing Tulsi (tea basils) brings many blessings to the household!  We find it very satisfying, with taste and aroma most appealing. 

Temperate Tulsi plant is bushy annual tea basil with small leaves, purple flowers, powerfully aromatic.  This plant is of East African origin, and India is right across the way.  Among all basils in our experience, this one is the most frost-hardy cultivar and self-seed over the seasons, which is unusual among basils.  This is the holy basil we recommend growing for home gardeners to make into tea.  We find it very satisfying, with the aroma most appealing. 

Traditional usage (Ayurveda): stress, anxiety, heart disease, arthritis, diabetes, and dementia.  Drinking tulsi tea in the morning is a fantastic way to get started.  

Modern research has classified Tulsi as an ADAPTOGENIC HERB.

Adaptogens have been shown to support the body's natural immune system while relieving its adverse reaction to stress. Adaptogenic herbs have been used in traditional Ayurvedic and Chinese herbal medicines for thousands of years to promote and maintain wellness. Many adaptogenic herbs have been referred to by herbalists as rejuvenative herbs, qi tonic herbs, rasayanas, or restorative herbs. They help the body adapt to environmental, physical, and emotional stressors, support normal functions, and restore balance. 

Growing Tulsi brings many blessings to the household!  We find it very satisfying, with taste and aroma most appealing. 

Pick young leaves and branches for cooking uses. You may use fresh leaves in tea or chew them directly. 

Sowing Guide

Plant Tulsi seeds in the Spring/early Summer for the best results.  Tulsi seed is a light-dependent germinator, and you can increase germ rates by holding the seed in the palm of your hand in the direct sunlight before planting and plant in such a way that the seeds still receive light in the pot or flat.  Scatter seeds on the surface, press in and keep evenly moist, in intense sunlight, and warm until germination. MUST NEED 18°C-25°C constant soil temperature to germinate. Plants thrive in warm climates.  This plant is frost intolerant.
