Thai Basil is a versatile herb, which, unlike other basil types, stands up well in high heat or extended cooking temperatures. Native to South East Asia, Thai Basil is very distinct thanks to its gorgeous, narrow green leaves on purple stems with pink-purple flowers. Thai Basil is used for green and red curries, Pad Thai, stews, stir-fries, salads, and even iced tea. Used as a condiment, a plate of raw Thai basil leaves is often served as an accompaniment to many Vietnamese dishes so that each person can season to taste. Thai Basil contains many vitamins and minerals, including vitamins A, C, and E, fiber, and antioxidants. Vitamin A is known to have antioxidant properties and is essential for vision. It is also required for maintaining healthy mucosa and skin. Consumption of natural foods rich in vitamin A has been found to help the human body protect from lung and oral cavity cancers. Thai Basil herb contains a good amount of minerals like potassium, manganese, copper, and magnesium. Potassium is an important component of cell and body fluids, which helps control heart rate and blood pressure. Let your Thai Basil tell you when it needs watering. It should start to wilt. Overwatering will dilute its flavor, while stressing it will increase the production of essential oils, improving its flavor. To stop your Thai Basil from getting too leggy, pinch back the stems just above new side shoots. Do not refrigerate as the chill will quickly turn the leaves black. Leave your potted Thai Basil on your kitchen bench away from draughts and preferably out of direct sunlight. Pinch the leaves and use them whole as a raw condiment or add whole leaves to your cooking. Like other types of basil, pick your Thai Basil leaves just before watering to get the most intense flavor, when the stems are starting to droop. You’ll see that all the flavor is concentrated in the fragrant leaves.
