HERB – CORIANDER – CILANTRO
Cilantro has quite a strong odour. A member of the parsley family, both the plant & its fruit are featured extensively in Asian, Latin, & Indian cuisines. You’ll find it enhancing the flavour of Chinese soups, Indian masalas, & Mexican salsas. It is an extremely popular spice with a pleasing lemony flavour. Little is known about the origins of the coriander plant, although it is generally thought to be native to the Mediterranean & parts of SW Europe. Experts believe its use dates back to at least 5,000 BC. References to coriander can be found in Sanskrit writings, & the seeds were placed in Egyptian tombs.
Outdoors, sow directly in pots, do not transplant as root disturbance causes early bolting.
