(Coriandrum sativum) No Mexican meal is complete without this multi-purpose herb. The fresh leaves are called cilantro, and the seeds are used as a spice called coriander. We like to make successive sowings to ensure a continuous supply. Slow bolting strain. 50-55 days to first leaf harvest, 90-120 days for seed. Annual, 1-2' tall.
Green Thumb Tip Sow seeds outdoors after last frost. May also be grown as a fall crop. Prefers rich well-drained soil. Cilantro has a tendency to self-seed.
