Basil Thai – Phoenix
Organic non GMO seeds for microgreens and sprouts
9,40 € – 350,00 €
Organic Thai Basil is the more exotic and oriental variant of the classic Green Basil. So named because of its origin and wide distribution in Asian countries, it has the delicate flavour of the classic variety, with a fresh liquorice aftertaste. These microgreens are therefore the ideal choice for those who wish to enrich their recipes, even the most traditional ones, with new and tasty flavours.
How can I grow it?
Thai Basil, like all other variants of the same family, has a mucilaginous seed: this means that when it comes into contact with water, it develops a mucous membrane around it to ensure proper and constant moisture throughout germination. Therefore, we advise you not to soak the seeds, not to plant them too densely and not to water them too much, especially in the first days of growth.
Keep the seeds in the dark by watering them about a couple of times a day until they have fully germinated after 4/5 days. After that, place them in sunlight until they are ready to be harvested: this will ensure that they develop the best possible flavour and aroma.
After about 20 days you can harvest your Thai Basil microgreens, cutting them as close to the root as possible, and enjoy them.
How can I eat it?
Organic Thai Basil seeds may contain traces of soy, mustard, wheat, gluten and grasses.
Store the seeds in a cool and ventilated place, with temperature between 8° and 20° C, away from weather, humidity changes and sunlight.
