It is known as Holy Basil in English and Tulasi in Sanskrit. Other names used for the Tulsi are Manjari, Krishna Tulsi, Trittavu, Tulshi and Thulsi. Tulsi is one of roughly 60 species of the genus Ocimum, the basil genus. Within the Tulsi family, there are several kinds grown in India. Most varieties are native to India, including the foothills of the Himalayas; they are also found throughout the Middle East. Tulsi is grown as an annual herb in temperate climates that may grow to a height of three feet. The root grows as a branched taproot. The stem has a square or quadrangular shape characteristic to Lamiaceae plants, and is branched, green to red in color with a fine layer of pubescence. The leaves are opposite, simple, ovate, serrate and petiolate. The flowers grow in a verticillaster inflorescence and are complete with a blue to purple color. There are four types of tulsi mentioned in ayurvedic texts Rama (Green Leaf) Tulsi, Sri or Lakshmi tulasi, Ocimum tenuiflorum, Ocimum sanctum. Krishna (Purple Leaf) Tulsi, Shyama Tulsi Vana (Wild Leaf) Tulsi Kapoor Tulsi (Heavy Flowered) Although, all three types of Tulsi have their uses in ayurveda, the Rama and Krishna are the most widely used. Purple Leaf Tulsi Also known as 'Krishna or Shyama Tulsi', the Purple leaf tulsi is famous for its peppery, crisp taste. It comprises purple colored leaves and dark stems. Although, it is grown in many regions in India, it is relatively more difficult to find than the green vaiietals. Purple leaf Tulsi is known to be beneficial to treat throat infections, respirtory system, nasal lesions, earache and skin diseases. Green Leaf Tulsi Also known as 'Rama Tulsi',Sri or Lakshmi tulasi, Ocimum tenuiflorum, Ocimum sanctum, the Green Leaf Tulsi is known for its cooling, mellower taste. All the parts of the plant emit a strong aroma. Ram Tulsi has a characteristic fragrance. Crushing its leaves between the palms releases a stronger fragrance than other varieties.
