Cilantro is renowned for its distinctive flavor. Its particular taste is either loved or disliked, because some people have a gene that makes it taste like soap! Beyond its culinary uses, cilantro is full of vitamins and useful as a traditional herbal medicine. Native to many regions (Southern Europe, Northern Africa, Southwestern Asia), it is now a global herb. These seeds are suitable for growing in USDA hardiness zones 2 to 11. If the weather is too hot in your area for cilantro, you can grow it indoors year round!


For best results, sow seeds directly into the garden in early spring or late summer when the temperatures are moderate. Avoid peak summer heat - it can cause the plant to bolt (flower and produce seeds) prematurely. Plant seeds a quarter-inch deep. Space them a few inches apart: cilantro can grow fairly bushy. The soil should be kept moist to encourage the cilantro germination time – typically within 7 to 10 days.


Cilantro plants are relatively easy to maintain. They need regular watering, especially during dry days. Regular picking will encourage bushier growth of the plant. When it begins to flower - allow it to go to seed. The coriander seeds cilantro produces can be dried and used as a spice that is exceptionally good in curries and other Asian dishes. Make sure you harvest leaves in the morning, as that is when the oil content is highest, and it ensures the best possible flavor. Cilantro is a fantastic addition to salads and is also delicious in salsas and a variety of dishes.
