Quantity: 50+ Seeds


Cilantro is a really delicious and versatile member of the carrot family, Apiaceae. The highly aromatic leaves grow at a fast rate, have a nice sweetness, and the texture is tender and pleasant; The leaves make a beautiful garnish for many dishes too. The plants have good cold resistance, so their growing season begins quite early, and extends into early winter, depending on your growing zone. The plants are easy to grow, and don't require much attention other than regular waterings and harvesting. Cilantro produces more when it's regularly harvested, so theres no need to wait until the plants grow large before picking.although some flavour will be lost, cilantro makes a very nice spice when dried and powdered. If the plant is left to mature, the seeds, also known as coriander, can be gathered and stored for later use as a spice that can be added to a vast array of dishes. These plants are very disease and pest resistant.


All seeds are organic and open pollinated.

  • Growing Instructions

    Its best to start Cilantro seeds directly in the ground as early as March, and continue to sow them every other week throughout the growing season to provide you with a constant supply of fresh herb. The Seeds can take between 2-4 weeks to germinate, but they can sometimes take less time too. Sow seeds 1/8 - 1/4 inches deep. Its important to keep the soil moist between sowing and sprouting, or else germination rate will most likely be poor. The plants do well when spaced every 5-6 inches, but many people plant them just an inch or 2 apart with great success. Cilantro grows best in full sun, but can tolerate some shade too
