Item details

Vana Holy Basil (Ocimum gratissimum), also known as African or Clove Basil, is indigenous to Africa but has a strong tradition of use in Indian Ayurvedic herbalism, where’s it’s known as “tulsi” or “tulasi.” This is most striking of the three tulsi types we’ve grown. Plants make mildly fuzzy emerald green foliage that has an aroma reminiscent of cinnamon and licorice. Takes longer to get established than either Rama or Krishna Holy Basil, but also has a more prolonged leaf production period. Use fresh or dry as a stress relieving tea.

90 days from seed for leaf harvests. Annual.
Packet: 0.15 gram, ~200 seeds
Grown at Mano Farm in Ojai, California

Additional policies

We are our own customers: farmer/gardeners who face the numerous challenges of growing quality, productive crops within ecological agriculture settings. We founded All Good Things Organic Seeds to offer quality vegetable, herb, and flower seeds adapted to organic growing conditions. The seed varieties we offer in our catalog are sourced directly from our farm in Ojai, California and other farms that reflect our agriculture ethic:

-We exclusively offer certified organic, untreated non-GMO varieties in our catalog. We are certified organic by Oregon Tilth.
-We do on-farm grow-outs and trials of every variety we sell, listing only those that display vigor, productivity, disease resistance and variety-specific uniformity.
-We understand plant breeding as an evolving, rather than static process. The varieties we offer are constantly being adapted and improved for the needs of a changing world.
-We perform germination tests on all seed lots every eight months to insure our customers are delivered viable, high-quality seeds.
-Our seeds are stored in climate-controlled conditions to ensure their long-term viability.

We are also advocates of the Safe Seed Pledge, innovated by High Mowing Organic Seeds in 1999:

Agriculture and seeds provide the basis upon which our lives depend. We must protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations. For the benefit of all farmers, gardeners and consumers who want an alternative, we pledge that we do not knowingly buy or sell genetically engineered seeds or plants. The mechanical transfer of genetic material outside of natural reproductive methods and between genera, families or kingdoms poses great biological risks, as well as economic, political and cultural threats. We feel that genetically engineered varieties have been insufficiently tested prior to public release. More research and testing is necessary to further assess the potential risks of genetically engineered seeds. Further, we wish to support agricultural progress that leads to healthier soils, genetically diverse agricultural ecosystems and ultimately healthy people and communities.
