Coriander Cilantro Coriandrum Sativum Seeds
Packet of 100+ freshly harvested seeds.
Plenty to get you started!
Organically grown by us and selected for maximum leaf growth before bolting.
Bolting is when leaf production stops and the plant sends out its flower spike and sets seed then dies.
In stressed conditions, like if it’s really hot and dry, this can happen quite quickly with some strains of seed.
We have always used the “fast bolting” plants for cooking and kept the slow bolters for seed production.
In that way we are constantly improving this breed of coriander from generation to generation.
Most imported commercially grown Coriander seeds is fast to set seed and bolt.
Therefore, not really ideal for leaf production….
If you’re after a breed for growing as a delicious leafy herb, then this is the one, especially if your soil, climate or soil moisture are not exactly ideal.
It’s a delicious herb used extensively in Mexican, Asian, and Indian cuisine.
Great picked fresh from the garden to munch on, as I wander around weeding!
Seems to keep the beetles off our strawberries a bit which is a bonus.
Grown by us organically, no nasties, no chems, no problems!!!
