From The Glossary: Holy Basil

Holy BasilThis is the type of basil which is stir fried with meat or tofu to make Pad Ga-prao, sometimes written in English as ‘stir fried with basil’. This basil is extremely difficult to find fresh outside of Thailand as it spoils fast. If you are lucky enough to find it, use it the same day you purchase it. This basil has big wide green leaves, green stems and green flowers.

Storage: This basil goes bad very fast. Keep in a plastic bag with some air inside on the bottom shelf or drawer in your refrigerator. When the leaves are black, it’s bad.
