Coriandrum sativum

Cilantro, Coriander, Chinese Parsley

Used in cooking and medicine since at least 800 BC, Coriander seeds are used as a spice and the delicate leaves, Cilantro, are used as an herb or vegetable. American and European cooking uses the Anise-like seeds in cookies, marmalade and pudding. The leaves are a common ingredient in Mexican, Chinese, Indian and Thai cuisines. Related to Parsley, Cilantro grows easily and quickly. It also attracts beneficial insects. Self-sows if allowed to go to seed. Sow seeds in place since they do not transplant well.
