Plant Information
An easy-to-grow garden staple, Coriander is a favorite not only because of its savory seeds, but also because of its strongly flavored leaves known as Cilantro. The Coriander seeds are described as tasting like a combination of sage and lemon peel, so they're a fantastic way to freshen up a variety of main dish, side dish, and dessert recipes, from cold to hot and simple to fancy. The Cilantro leaves are often used as a substitute for parsley or dill, giving a very distinctive flavor to countless dishes, salads, soups, and more. It's especially awesome in salsas, and is a common ingredient in the cuisine of Mexico, Asia, and the Caribbean. Thought to be one of the earliest spices ever used, Coriander is very easy to grow, but not very tolerant of transplanting so it's best to direct sow in the garden or containers. The plants will reach heights of 1-3 feet and bloom with lovely little white flowers before turning to seed. Seeds are ready to gather when they're light tan or straw-like in color and can be stored in an airtight container for use whenever you like.
