A staple in Mexican, Asian and Indian cuisines,
cilantro (also called coriander) provides
a pungent punch to salsas or curries. Leaves,
roots and dried seeds are used in cooking. 50
days to maturity.
Spacing: 1" apart/ rows 1' apart
Germination: 5-10 days
Days To Maturity: 50 days
Comments: You can either cut leaves as needed or pull the entire plant and use the roots in soup. When the plant "bolts" or starts to flower it becomes bitter and is not longer is used as cilantro. Best stored in the refrigerator in airtight containers, after chopping off the roots.
