Description

The delicious, spicy pungency of fresh cilantro leaf is an essential ingredient in salsa and most Mexican dishes or in piquant Southeast Asian cooking. Our Slow-Bolt Cilantro holds in leaf better than other strains, but make several sowings to yield a constant fresh supply, as plants do go to seed quickly and the lacy green leaves don't dry well. If your plants do flower, scatter their spicy blossom florets in salads.

While Renee's Garden seeds are not all certified organic, they do not sell treated or GMO seeds and have signed the "Safe Seed Pledge.”

Planting & Care

Planting: In early spring, sow Cilantro seed directly into well-drained, fertile soil 1 - 2" apart in rows 8" apart in full sun. Cover 1/2" deep and firm soil over seeds. Keep seedbed evenly moist as seedlings emerge over 10 - 20 days. Make new sowings every few weeks until mid summer for continuous harvests of fresh leaves. Cilantro doesn't transplant well; we advise direct garden sowing. Thin seedlings 3 - 4" apart before plants get crowded.

Growing: Cilantro plants flower, then set seed quickly as plants mature. Lushest, leafy growth takes place in cooler weather; plant early and throughout cool spring weather and sow again in fall, particularly in mild winter areas. To have a constant supply of fresh leaves, sow ever 2 - 3 weeks through early summer. Keep cilantro at its leafy stage longer by keeping plants well watered and being careful to thin seedlings early. Let some of the lacy flowers form to attract beneficial insects and pollinating bees. The fragrant round seeds are called coriander, an aromatic spice used in baking.
