In Thailand, it is called Kaphrao, and used as a culinary herb. Holy basil is easy to grow from seeds, and it thrives in the heat of summer. Try growing certified organic Holy Basil in containers or in your herb garden. Note that this is a different species from the regular basil varieties shown in this website.
