Karpoora Thulasi (Oscimum Kilimandscharicum Lamiaceae)


Oscimum kilimandscharicum Guerke, commonly known as camphor basil (Kapur Tulsi), is a native of Kilimanjaro, Kenya (East Africa) and then spread widely in the tropical and subtropical regions such as Rwanda, Athens, Nigeria, Ghana, Thailand and India.

Ocimum kilimandscharicum Guerke (Lamiaceae), alien to the Indian flora, was discovered in the natural habitat from two locations of different agro-ecological zones of Odisha. After critical review of published literature on distribution, it was earlier known only from Uttarakhand. However, its natural occurrence in Odisha was found to be a new record for peninsular India. A detailed diagnostic description, photographs, ecology and potentiality of the species was provided for easy identification and further economic utilization.
