Cilantro/Coriander Long Standing Organic HEIRLOOM Seeds

Coriandrum sativum

Item #6028

Cool season annual. Also called Chinese Parsley, cilantro has a thousand uses in the kitchen. We chose Long Standing for its excellent flavor, improved leafiness and, as the name infers, its slow-to-bolt quality. 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.

Harvesting: Foliage can be harvested any time. Seeds should be harvested after they begin to turn brown and when the outer coat cracks, but before they drop off the plant and scatter. Cut stem and place in a brown paper sack to collect the seeds. Rubbing the seeds will cause the outer shell to drop off.
