Botanical Interests Cilantro/Coriander Seeds, Annual
The foliage (cilantro) and the seeds (coriander) of this herb are widely used throughout the world. Fresh cilantro has an intense, tangy flavor that balances well with other strong-flavored ingredients. Also called 'Chinese Parsley', it is an essential ingredient in many dishes, including Chinese, Indian, Southeast Asian, and Latin American recipes. It has a thousand uses from as simple as a sprig in chicken soup (tasty!) to chopped in Mexican food. Dried crushed coriander seeds add a spicy, nutty, citrusy flavor to pickling spice, curry and chili powders, salads, eggs, pastries and breads. Santo is a slow-bolting variety. It won't flower and go to seed as quickly as other varieties when hot weather approaches. It is a good container variety. You can also grow it indoors in a sunny window in the winter for fresh leaves. This packet plants thirteen 10 foot rows.
When to plant outside: Spring, after the average last day of frost. Successive plantings every 3 weeks until 4 weeks before first fall frost.
When to start inside: Not recommended. It does not transplant very well.

About Botanical Interests
Curtis and Judy met while waiting to interview for the same horticultural job and soon found they shared a boundless enthusiasm for gardening. Botanical Interests began out of their mutual passion and personal desire for better quality seed and more informational tools to help and inpire gardeners.
"We wanted a level of purity and quality that wasn't easy to find," recalls Curtis. So they searched out the highest quality seed available and began their business in 1997, in the spare bedroom of their Colorado home. The business objectives they established then still hold strong for them now: to inspire and educate gardeners; to provide high quality seed to their customers; and to create an enjoyable work place for employees.
Over the years, Judy and Curtis' family has grown along with their line of seeds which now attracts and pleases customers nationwide.
