Oriental Basil

There are several varieties of basil grown in many regions of the Orient. Most of Oriental basils have a clove-like flavor that is generally stronger than that of Western basils. Basils are very popular in Thai cooking. Vietnamese and Chinese also use fresh or dried basils in soups and foods. Plants grow very well in sunny or partially shaded areas.
