THAI HOLY BASIL IS THE MORE PUNGENT AND STRONG FLAVORED BASIL. THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HOT AND SEET BASIL IS EASY TO DETECT  VISUALLY, BECAUSE THE HOT BASIL HAS SOME LITTLE HAIRS ON THE EDGE ON THE LEAVES.

THAT,  AS THE SIZE AND SHAPE OF THE LEAVES IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE MOST COMMON USED THAI BASILS.
