Description More Information
 
The seeds are known as coriander and the leaves are called cilantro. Coriander has been in use for over 3,000 years. Much used in East Indian curries.

Cilantro is a must in Mexican cooking and in making salsa! Average: 40 days


Detailed planting instructions:

Sow coriander seed ¼ to ½ inch deep; thin successful seedlings from 8 to 12 inches apart. Space rows 12 to 15 inches apart.

Keep coriander evenly moist throughout the growing season. Do not let plants dry out. Avoid overhead watering as plants reach maturity; overhead water or rain can reduce seed yield. Add aged compost to the planting bed in advance of planting. Do not fertilize mid-season.

HARVESTING

Snip cilantro leaves for fresh use after the plant is 6 inches tall or more. Pick just the top 2 to 3 inches to ensure continuous growth. Continue picking leaves until the plant flowers. Snip off the tops of stems before the plant flowers for continued harvest of leaves. For coriander seeds, allow plants to flower; seed will be ready for harvest 2 to 3 weeks after flowering when they turn light brown. Harvest them when they dry but before they fall to the ground.

SAVING SEEDS

The seeds are contained in the flower heads. Make sure that you cut the stems at least 8 inches long.

Bundle the stems of the herbs together using either string or a rubber band.

Place your bundle of herbs upside down with the seed heads inside a brown paper bag. Tie the bag closed around the stems with either string or a rubber band.

Hang the bag in a dry place. Do not hang it in direct sunlight. The seeds will fall into the bag as they dry.

Remove the seeds and stems from the bag after most of the seeds have fallen. Remove any seeds remaining on the seed heads. Store them in a glass jar in a cool, dark area until you are ready to use them.
