Description

Essential in Latin and Asian dishes. This special variety produces three times the amount of leaves over a much longer period, and is slow to bolt. Sensational aroma and flavoring for anything from salsa and Tex-Mex to Thai dishes — cilantro is complementary to any dish containing chiles. Bolted plants produces flowers that are attractive to beneficial insects, so leave them be after they’re done producing leaves. Plant every two weeks all summer for a constant supply.
