Organic Cilantro / Coriander Seeds
Cilantro, or Chinese Parsley, is a hardy annual cool season crop. This aromatic herb is alive with a flavor of both citrus and spice that enlivens Mexican, Chinese, Southeast Asian, and Indian foods. Although it is usually just the leaves of the fresh cilantro plant that are the most popular, the pungent seeds (known as coriander), and the tangy roots promise a tasty treat as well.
Once the plant bolts (producing a stalk on which flowers will grow) the leaves lose their flavor, so pinch back frequently to keep flowers at bay. Growing plants in partial shade during a hot spell can help prevent bolting. Succession planting every 2-4 weeks will ensure constant cilantro for your kitchen. Let some plants go to seed - you can dry them for use as coriander, save for future plantings, or let drop for yet more cilantro plants!
