Cilantro is also known as coriander. The seeds are used ground-up as a seasoning in all sorts of foods and candies. Fresh leaves are indispensable to Latin American and Chinese cuisine. While cilantro has good heat resistance and is slow to bolt, plants will nonetheless eventually bolt in the high heat of summer. To counter this, sow seed every two weeks to ensure a continuous supply all summer long. Grows to 70cm (28in). Annual.

Sow seed outdoors in mid-to-late May then every two weeks through August, or start them inside and transplant after the danger of frost has passed. Cilantro can be grown indoors on a sunny window or under lights during the winter. Indoor cilantro plants are not long lived nor do they produce significantly, but they will add a bit of summer to dull winter days. Outdoors, Cilantro is a low-maintenance plant and prolific– all you really need to do is provide water when necessary. Lightly feed with a general-purpose fertilizer as too much can adversely affect the production of the essential oils responsible for flavour and aroma. Cilantro is grown for its leaves and seeds.
