Coriander or Cilantro
Coriandrum sativum

The leaves of Coriandrum sativum are used fresh in soups, salads and salsas. When used as a fresh, green seasoning as described, it is called "Cilantro." Left to mature and develop fruit in the late summer, the crop you harvest, that is its seeds, are used as a flavoring for meats, pickles, sausages, and sauces. In this seed form, the spice is known as "Coriander."

Easy to grow from seed and is an annual that will reseed itself under favorable conditions. Each packet contains one gram, which is approximately 70 seeds.
Wonderful Flavor, grows fast, cold resistant, self seeds!
This plant grows quickly and the leaves have wonderful flavor, especially for Mexican dishes. Here in Texas, the plants self-seed and come up in spring and fall, which is great. The plants can grow through the winter, surviving temperatures down to 10F, while I harvest cilantro leaves, and then in summer they bolt and we get coriander seeds. The plants are about a foot tall until they bolt in summer, when they get about 3 feet tall and then fall over. I often pull off the seed heads and throw them in the garden where I want cilantro to grow next year!

Easy to Grow
I simply planted the seeds in my herb garden and several other gardens and watered it till sprouted. I mulch my gardens. I staggered my planting dates so I would have fresh cilantro all season for canning and eating. I saved the seeds at the end of the season to use for cooking and planting this year.This herb is super easy to grow and even planted some in containers on my deck. Smells wonderful!
