Tucker Bush Bush Basil 25g (Flakes)
A strongly aromatic herb which is very different from the familiar exotic Basil. More of a “Five Spice Plant” for its complex aroma, reminiscent of basil, thyme, lemon balm, mint and sage. Complimenting Mediterranean flavours like tomato and garlic.
Other name(s): Mountain Plectranthus
Ingredients: Bush Basil (Plectranthus graveolens)
Tucker Bush Bush Basil was grown and packaged at our very own nursery located in the Perth Hills on Whadjuk Noongar country. This heat-loving native herb was nurtured under the plant’s ideal growing conditions, and fed the very same nutrients we recommend to backyard gardeners.
We launched our line of native herb products to help introduce traditional bush food flavours to modern Australian cuisine. Part proceeds from every packet sold helps fund the Tucker Bush Schools Program, cultivating a new generation of plant-loving Aussies with awareness and respect for this country’s unique natural treasures.
Bush Basil (Plectranthus graveolens) is a shrubby plant found throughout NSW along the coastline, in sheltered rainforest margins, beneath sclerophyll forest trees, and around the Central Tablelands.
Tucker Bush acknowledges the wisdom and knowledge of Aboriginal Elders both past and present, acknowledges the custodians of the land upon which our organisation operates, and pays respects to the Aboriginal communities of today.
