I like herbs, gingers, medicinal plants and fruits. I would like to share pictures of my harvest, other gardens and also interesting pictures of creatures found around the garden.
This is the common Thai Basil, Ocimum basilicumvar. thyrsiflorum . Widely used in many Thai, Viet and Indo-china dishes. The stalk of this variety turns purple when grown in full sun.
This is Ocimum sanctumThai Holy Basil, known in Thailand as "Krapow". Although it is suppose to be the same plant as Tulsi (Indian Holy Basil), the fragrance of the Thai variety is much stronger and the leaves are much bigger.
This is purple basil, O. basilicum 'Purple Ruffles'. Bought this plant from Far East Flora. It's fragrance is very similar to the common Thai Basil.
