Organic cilantro seeds are a popular choice among home gardeners and professional growers alike. Known for their robust growth and distinctive flavor, these seeds offer a reliable option for cultivating cilantro, a herb beloved for its culinary versatility. Whether you're planting in a garden bed or containers, organic cilantro seeds are a fantastic addition to any herb garden.

Characteristics of Cilantro Plants

Cilantro plants, scientifically known as Coriandrum sativum, are annual herbs that belong to the Apiaceae family. They typically grow to a height of 12 to 24 inches and have a spread of about 6 to 12 inches. The plants are characterized by their bright green, feathery leaves that resemble flat-leaf parsley, though they have a distinct, fresh aroma.

Cilantro seeds produce plants that develop quickly, usually ready for harvest within 30 to 40 days of planting. The leaves are delicate and should be harvested regularly to encourage new growth and prevent the plant from bolting, which is when it starts to produce flowers and seeds prematurely. Bolting usually occurs in warmer weather, so planting cilantro in cooler seasons or providing some shade can help prolong its leafy production.

Growing Organic Cilantro Seeds

To successfully grow organic cilantro seeds, it's important to start with well-draining soil enriched with organic matter. Cilantro prefers a pH range of 6.2 to 6.8 and thrives in full sun to partial shade. Begin by sowing the seeds directly into the soil, spacing them about 1 to 2 inches apart and covering them lightly with a quarter-inch of soil. Keep the soil consistently moist until the seeds germinate, which usually takes about 7 to 10 days.

Cilantro is relatively low maintenance once established. Regular watering is essential, especially during dry periods, to keep the soil evenly moist. Mulching around the plants can help retain soil moisture and reduce weed growth. Cilantro benefits from periodic feeding with a balanced, organic fertilizer to support its growth.

Flavor and Culinary Uses

One of the primary reasons gardeners choose organic cilantro seeds is the herb's unique and vibrant flavor. The leaves of the cilantro plant offer a fresh, citrusy taste with a hint of spice, making them a staple in many cuisines worldwide. Cilantro is commonly used in Mexican, Indian, and Southeast Asian dishes, adding a bright, refreshing note to salsas, curries, salads, and soups.

In addition to its leaves, the seeds of the cilantro plant, known as coriander, are also highly valued in cooking. Coriander seeds have a warm, nutty flavor with a touch of citrus, making them a versatile spice for both sweet and savory dishes. They are often toasted or ground to release their full aroma and incorporated into spice blends, marinades, and baked goods.

Benefits of Choosing Organic Seeds

Opting for organic cilantro seeds ensures that your herb garden is free from synthetic chemicals and genetically modified organisms (GMOs). Organic seeds are grown using sustainable agricultural practices that promote biodiversity and soil health. By choosing organic, you support a healthier ecosystem and contribute to a more sustainable food system.

In Summary

Organic cilantro seeds are a wonderful choice for any gardener looking to grow this versatile and flavorful herb. With their rapid growth and distinctive taste, cilantro plants can enhance a wide variety of dishes and add a fresh, aromatic touch to your garden. By following proper planting and care techniques, you can enjoy a bountiful harvest of cilantro leaves and seeds, all while supporting organic and sustainable gardening practices.

Soil & Water: Supplement the soil with plenty of organic matter to help with water retention, and mulch the roots to keep them from drying out. In hot summer climates, grow in the shade of other plants to postpone bolting.

Planting & Growing: Sow seeds directly when soil reaches 55°F, or start indoors 4-6 weeks before the last frost.

Harvesting & Storage: Begin harvesting leaves when the plant is about 6" tall. Cilantro leaves are best used fresh because the flavor disappears when dried. Allow a few plants to go to seed; harvest the seeds when they turn brown by shaking the seed heads over a paper bag. Allow them to dry before storing them in an airtight container.

High quality

We start this cilantro every year indoors and then plant outdoors. We always end up with super hearty plants with a large harvest that we enjoy in fresh salsas, Mexican dishes, and use it when we make our canned salsas also.

Good germination

Good germination. Decent amount of seed in the package. Plan on letting it go to seed in my garden plot and replant itself. Cilantro rocks.
