Cilantro is also known as coriander and Chinese parsley. This variety of cilantro is a highly productive variety that resists bolting (tolerates hot summers). The fresh leaves and seeds taste great. Matures in 50 days.
How to Grow Cilantro
Cilantro prefers full sun and well-draining, moist soil. Directly sow seeds outdoors after the last frost has passed, or in late summer. Sow cilantro seeds 1/4-inch deep, 6 inches apart, and in rows 10 inches apart. Once the plant is large enough, fresh leaves can be harvested at any time. The plants will mature in 50-55 days.
Harvesting Coriander Seeds
Coriander seeds can be harvested when the seed pods turn brown. Cut the stems which can be stored in a paper bag to finish the ripening stage. Keep in a cool, dark place for a couple of weeks.
