Coriandrum sativum


Full to Partial Sun

35 Days to Harvest Leaf, 85 Seed

12”-18” Tall

Plant 4”-6” Apart


A slow bolting cilantro variety that can be used for its leaves or seeds (known as coriander). Cilantro is a quick growing annual, that will try to go to seed as the weather gets hot. Harvesting the leaves regularly helps delay seed production. Harvest leaves by clipping or pinching off the leaves all the way back to the base of the plant. Once the 

plant does start to go to seed the flowers are good providers of pollen and nectar to pollinators and beneficial insects. The flowers are also edible, with a milder cilantro flavor, although it fades quickly when cooked.
