This is characterized in particular by their fresh, healthy ingredients, fresh herbs, gentle preparation and not least by their sharpness. The Thais love the food spicy.

Basil Tree is a non-stop harvest plant. Also known as Clove basil, this is a quite distinct species in being a much-branched, shrubby perennial, woody at the base. An agreeably, sweetly perfumed plant with fuzzy, lime-green leaves up to 4ins long, it bears dense spikes of small, pale yellow flowers.
You can grow this plant as the other basil species simply as a potted plant. The basil will develop a real woody trunk and a massive ball head. In summer it can be grown outside in the garden or on the terrace, in winter in the winter garden or in the window niche in the house.
Use in the kitchen

How to Grow Thai-Herbs
When I first fell in love with gardening, my biggest seducer was herbs. I found herbs to be not only one of the easiest types of plants to grow, but they were also the most fun to create a garden with - not to mention the most versatile group of plants out there.
Among the tremendous species of herbs from which I could choose, basil (Ocimum basilicum) was one of my favorites to experiment with. I found that not only was basil easy to grow and handy for the kitchen, but storing and propagating basil was a snap.
