Cilantro's flavor--clean and fine, complementary to most dishes--is quite unique. Luckily, the herb is easy to grow. It is wonderful to have on hand: chop some up and toss in vegetable soups, or in curries, or on stir fries. It is best used just before serving, sprinkled on the dish at the table. Note that cilantro must be sown in succession in order to have an extended harvest. By nature, cilantro provides a brief harvest window of only a few weeks before bolting. Keep on sowing to keep on harvesting.

How to Grow

Direct sow in succession every 2 weeks from about a month before last frost until early fall. Succession sowing is all important with cilantro; it bolts after only a couple weeks of harvest. Not picky about soil. Leaves grow low to the ground and purple-hued in cold weather, yet remain tasty. Harvest confidently--even greedily--lest plants bolt before you get your share.
