Thai: ???????? (bai maeng-luck)
Lemon basil is used most often with seafood and in soup. Lemon basil has a real citrus-like smell and taste. This basil has small green leaves, green stem and white flowers.
Storage: Lemon basil goes bad 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.
