NEW FOR 2023!
There is no middle ground when it comes to Cilantro - you either love it or hate it. I love it of course but here's the deal. Cilantro and Coriander are the same plant. Cilantro is what we call the tender, delicious green leaves and Coriander is the fragrant fruiting bodies, (the seeds), after it flowers. The seeds are edible and they readily give you more seed to plant so you always have young, tender cilantro leaves - whenever you want them.
They are so easy to grow, you can start some seeds in containers in the windowsill, plant a row or broadcast the seed around the garden and let them find their way.
Cilantro is known for bolting quickly so succession planting is recommended. If you prefer the seed as a spice, let 'em go to seed!
Pollinators love the flowering tops.
Original seed from Jesus Flores, a high altitude farmer we admire so much.
