CILANTRO, Santo

One of the most useful herbs, each part of the cilantro plant - leaves (cilantro), seeds (coriander), and roots can be used in cooking! This extra slow-bolting variety is grown more so for its large leaves rather than seeds. The pungent, sharp leaves are best used fresh. The roots have the same flavor as the leaves but with an added nuttiness and can be used freshly minced. Flowers appear in summer. Cilantro will thrive in average, moist soil.
