50 days. Thai Sweet Basil is the aromatic, sweet, spicy basil that is essential in the cuisine of Thailand. The juicy, tender leaves are packed with anise-licorice flavor. Thai Sweet basil is a must-have for spring rolls, stir-fries, curries, salads, and is a welcome addition to fresh or dried tea blends. The leaves are also an essential herb for Vietnamese, Cambodian, and Laotian cuisine. The bright green leaves are offset by dramatic purple flower spikes. These colorful plants also make a delightful edible ornamental and are a welcome addition to herb or landscape design. The small lavender-purple spikes are also a dainty and delicious edible flower with a slight licorice taste. Be aware that leaves will develop a stronger flavor if the plants are allowed to go to flower. For leaf production, be sure to keep blooms pinched as they emerge
