This one plant gives you two different culinary condiments. Cilantro is the leafy aromatic herb with a tangy citrus-parsley flavor, used in Latin and Asian cuisines. Coriander is the dried seed, whole or powdered, with an earthy, floral flavor used as a spice in Indian cuisine. One tastes nothing like the other, so if you’re in the part of the population that thinks the leaves taste like soap, grow it just for the seeds or the tiny pinkish flowers, which are quite sweet. Cilantro prefers cool weather, and this slow-bolt variety will tolerate a bit more heat, putting out more leaves for a longer time before it starts bolting out tasty flowers and Coriander seeds. Leaves, stems, flowers, seeds, and root of this fast-growing herb are all edible. It also likes shady spots, so a good one to grow indoors. 

  • Citrus-parsley (or soap) flavor
  • All parts are edible
  • Grows 1'-2' tall
  • Good for indoor gardens

  • As a companion plant, it attracts pollinators and beneficial insects, and repels aphids, carrot rust fly, grasshoppers, mosquitoes, potato beetles, and spider mites.

    As a medicinal herb, Coriander has been used internally to treat anxiety, arthritis, bad breath, colic, constipation, diabetes, diarrhea, flatulence, indigestion, inflammation, insomnia, lack of appetite, nausea, nervousness, pain, stomach cramps, and urinary tract infections (UTIs), and externally to treat rheumatism, headache, joint pain, and tired eyes.
