NZH Also known as Cilantro in South America this herb is found in traditional dishes from Mexico, other South American countries, as well as Indian cuisine. Use leaves as a garnish or use seeds in cooking. We add it to salads and fresh summer salsas.
Direct sow in Spring and Early Summer for almost constant supply, allow some of your plants to set seed as these seeds will germinate for a great winter patch of coriander. Sow into trays and prick out to 4cm diagonal spacing when true leaves appear. Transplant to 15cm diagonal spacing. In summer best planted in the shade to prevent premature bolting.
