How to Harvest Thai Basil
Thai Basil is a fragrant herb, great for using in cocktails, stir-frys and more. Ever tried our Tropical Thai Twist? Harvest this herb with our tips below so the plants grow back for continuous cuttings every few days.
HOW TO HARVEST Thai BASIL:
- After about 4 weeks of growth, when the plants are at least 6" tall, identify the top cluster of leaves, above the second set of leaves on the main stem.
- Take a pair of scissors, and snip the main stem right below this top cluster and above the second set of leaves. This will allow for the plant to grow side-shoots and develop into a lush, bushy plant for additional harvests in just a few days.
- These are fragrant (both leaves and flowers) for adding to botanical beverages or topping homemade meals.
