Cilantro (Coriandrum sativum)

Popular herb grown for both its leaves (cilantro) and flavorful seeds (coriander). This parsley lookalike is an essential ingredient for many Latin and Asian dishes.
Plant directly in garden once soil reaches 55 F. Prefers cool temperatures and will bolt once weather turns hot. Harvesting early and often will encourage a bushier plant and a longer harvest. May be grown indoors during hot or cold weather. To collect coriander seed, cut seed head off once it's mostly brown. Hang upside down inside a small paper bag to dry.
