Cilantro is one of the easiest-to-grow, most recognizable fresh herbs with a season that is extendable through succession planting. Cilantro is sold bunched at full size and as a micro green. While the foliage is commonly called cilantro, the edible seed is known as coriander. Both are widely used in Asian, Caribbean, and Latin American cuisines, with a distinctive flavor that lends itself well to highly spiced foods. The flowers strongly attract 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 is found.
