Thai basil, also known as Cinnamon Basil or Mexican basil, is a native to the world’s tropical and subtropical climates. It is used in teas and baked goods such as cookies and pies. It is also used in pastas, salads, jellies, and vinegars. Outside the kitchen, cinnamon basil is used in dried arrangements and as a potpourri.
Thai basil leaves are also a frequent ingredient in thai green and red curries and is more stable under high or extended cooking temperatures than that of sweet basil. The plant prefers the soil which is lightly moist, slightly acidic, well-drained and rich in organic matter.
