Heirloom Herb. Cilantro Coriander seeds produce a leafy plant often referred to as cilantro but is also known as Arab Parsley, Yuen Sai or Chinese Parsley. Leaves are an essential ingredient in both Chinese and Latin cuisine. This herb has good heat resistance and is slow to bolt. Regular cilantro seeds, or coriander as they are sometimes called, are actually little nutlets containing more than one true seed. Monogerm seeds have been split by the grower for more precise seeding, either in trays or direct in the field. Each half seed produces a single plant. This is the same Santo variety that has been bred for bolt resistance. For precision seeding with a field seeder or into plug trays, use Santo Monogerm Cilantro Seeds and get the exact number of plants you need for your organic vegetable garden. If the plants eventually bolt in the summer, be sure to harvest the flavourful taproot, which is useful in Thai and Vietnamese recipes.

Annual.

How to Grow

65 seed/gram. Sow seed directly outdoors after danger of frost has passed and cover with a fine sifting of soil. Grow as a short-term transplant to avoid bolting. Sequentially sow seeds for a steady supply of transplants through the summer. Seed generally germinates in 5-7 days. Transplant seedlings 10-12 days later, at least 30 cm apart. Leaves can be used 25-30 days after transplanting.
