Coriander

Also known as Cilantro, Coriander is a fragrant, fast growing culinary herb and an essential ingredient in many national cuisines. Fresh leaves add a distinctive ‘citrus peel’ flavour to Thai, Vietnamese, Indian, Chinese, North African and Mexican dishes. All parts of the plant are edible; the fresh leaves, seeds, stems and chopped roots are all used in cooking.

Sow

Direct in garden position. Cover with Yates Seed Raising Mix, firm down and keep moist.

Care

Grow in full sun. Pick leaves at any time for flavouring. Apply Yates Thrive Soluble Fertiliser regularly to increase foliage. Protect from snails with Yates Blitzem. When seeds begin to brown, cut stem and place upside down in paper bag. The seeds can be dried and kept whole or infused to make Coriander Vinegar.
