(Coriander, Thai Parsley) Harvest the shining, smooth leaves before the plant flowers for use as the culinary spice Cilantro in cooking and in salsa. Traditional usage (TWM): Chelation of heavy minerals. Harvest the seeds and use them as Coriander, a curry ingredient and spice. Plant prefers full sun and regular garden soil. Sow directly in the garden bed in spring, as soon as the ground can be worked. Plant in furrows 2 to 3 feet apart, barely cover seeds, tamp well, make sure the planting stays moist, and allow to come up thick. Germination can be a bit cranky, especially in over-warm soils. Sow starting in the early spring, in successions 3 weeks apart, in order to assure ongoing availability of the fresh herb. Harvest for leaf prior to flowering.
