The fresh leaves of this herb, commonly known as cilantro, are used in a variety of Asian and Latin cuisines, and its seeds are also collected and used as a spice called coriander. Successive sowing of this annual herb, which bears umbels of white flowers before it sets seed, will ensure a steady supply of its edible leaves throughout the season. 50-55 days to first leaf harvest, 90-120 days for seed. Annual, 1-2' tall.
Plant seeds inside 1/2” deep in plant trays. Sow seeds outdoors after last frost. If direct seeding outside, plants to 8-10” apart. May also be grown as a fall crop. Prefers rich well- drained soil. Cilantro has a tendency to self-seed. Can tolerate partial shade.
