Shipping Information & Notes

Growing Information

Cilantro/Coriander

DAYS TO GERMINATION: 7-10 days.

SOWING: Direct seed (recommended): Direct seed spring through late summer. Sow 1-2 seeds per inch, 1/4- 1/2" deep in rows 12-18" apart. There is no need to thin, as cilantro continues to grow well even when sown thickly. For coriander seed production, thin to stand 2-4" apart. Successive sowings can be done every 2-3 weeks for continual harvest of leaves.

LIGHT PREFERENCE: Sun. In most locations, bolting is likely in the heat of midsummer. Can be successfully grown in part shade in warm climates.

SOIL REQUIREMENTS:
Does best in rich, well-drained soil.

PLANT HEIGHT: 12-18".

PLANT SPACING: 2-4".

HARDINESS ZONES: Annual.

HARVEST: Leaves may be harvested once the plants have become established and before flowering begins. Mature seeds are produced about 3 months after planting and are harvested when dry on the plant.
