Cilantro (Coriander) (Coriandrum sativum) seeds, organic

$3.95$26.10

Family:  Carrot (Apiaceae)

Annual.  30 days to cilantro (leaf), 90 days to coriander (seed)

(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.

      Hi Richo, I was reading on another site that cilantro seeds need to be “split”. Would you agree with that? Are these seeds split?

      Hi DD,
      If you split the sphere into 2 hemispheres (2 seeds) that is actually good, because then when you plant them you get 2 plants at a distance. But some of the “spheres” are very hard to split apart and you damage the seed when you try. I think you’ll find out certified organic seed has some splits and some spheres.
