Cilantro is one of the easiest to grow, most recognizable fresh herbs with a season that is extended through succession planting. It can be sold bunched at full size or as a micro green. The foliage is commonly called cilantro, while the edible seed is known as coriander. It is widely used in Asian, Caribbean, and Latin American cuisines, and its distinctive flavor lends itself well to highly spiced foods. The flowers provide a strong attraction to beneficial insects, and are also edible. Sprinkle them raw on salads, chicken, and spicy Southwestern dishes for a mild cilantro flavor.
At Johnny's, we test all our cilantro/coriander seed for the presence of pseudomonas. We lab-test 15,000 seeds from every lot, and ship only from lots where none was found.
