I bought some Holy Basil the other day thinking it was regular Thai Basil. It did look slightly different, but I didn't think about it at the time.
The nursery tag says it's ornamental only, but when I did a search online I found where it said it can be medicinal and is a favorite to eat in Thailand. After this search I'm so totally confused I don't know whether to eat this stuff, or get rid of it.
Can anyone give me information about Holy Basil? There used to be an Asian woman who worked at the nursery, but I haven't seen her lately and don't know if she still works there.
Thanks for any help anyone can give me about the Holy Basil. The tag doesn't have a botanical name for it. Just says, "Holy Basil."
