Coriandrum Sativum (Coriander, Cilantro) Cilantro may be one of the most refreshing and easy-to-grow herbs. Resembling flat-leaf (Italian) parsley and being a common herb in Asian cuisine, cilantro is also fittingly known as Chinese parsley. In fact, it was brought from the East to Britain and Rome. It can be used for any of the same purposes as parsley. The leaves are perfect in soups, salads and, best of all, in fresh salsa. They are a good source of vitamins A and C. The seeds are a separate spice, known as coriander. They are an aromatic stimulant whose oil is used in aromatherapy.

Growing Information: Cilantro is very easy to grow. The seeds will germinate at relatively cool temperatures. Sow seeds 1/4 inch deep (about an inch apart) and keep moist. Most soils will work well. Full sun to partial shade is good. Fresh herb can even be grown indoors under fluorescent lights during the winter. Harvest sprigs of herb as needed. Meanwhile, you can still allow tops to grow out if seed is desired. But at that point, the plants are no longer ideal for harvesting fresh cilantro leaf. Planting new crops every few weeks is recommended for heavy use of cilantro herb, so that clumps can just be cut back at the base before they ever reach flowering.
