Coriander sativum

Culture

This herb can be referred to by two names depending upon which part is harvested and used.  If the leaves are harvested it is called cilantro.  If the seeds are harvested it is called coriander.  Two products, one plant.  Cilantro grows one to two feet tall and has finely cut leaves that resemble flat leaf parsley.  It has a penetrating odor and flavor.

Soil and Nutrition Requirements

Cilantro does best in rich, well-drained soil.

Plant Spacing

Do not divide cilantro plants. Plant plugs 2-4" apart.

Row Spacing

12-18" 

When to Plant

Cilantro prefers cool weather (spring and fall) and can bolt quickly in the heat of summer.

Leaves may be harvested once the plants have become established and before flowering begins. Mature seeds are produced about 3 months after planting and are harvested when dry on the plant.

Days to Maturity

Leaf: 50-55 days
