Also called Chinese parsley, cilantro has a thousand uses in the kitchen. 'Long Standing Santo' in particular has excellent flavor, improved leafiness and, as the name infers, it is slow to bolt. Add a sprig to chicken soup or add chopped leaves to Mexican, Caribbean, or Asian dishes. The crushed seeds add intriguing flavor to stews, beans, and cookies. Can be grown indoors for fresh cilantro leaves year-round. Cilantro grows best in cool temperatures.

Rubbing the seeds will cause the outer shell to drop off.

First planting from the 2021 packet was okay, maybe a 70-80% germination rate in my organic aero garden, big beautiful tall fragrant cilantro. I have since planted 4 seperate times (starting 3-4 wks after my first planting) and not one has grown, the seeds just rot. Everything else I have planted grows wonderfully, so my only conclusion is the seeds are (already) no longer viable.
