Coriander 'Santo' is considered a benchmark variety for field grown coriander. It is probably the best variety of coriander for leaf production as the plant combines very slow bolting with an upright habit and excellent flavour. The upright habit makes harvesting easy. Compared to shop-bought both the leaves and seeds smell amazing.
Coriander is not one of the world's favourite flavourings, it's two of them. This dual purpose annual herb is grown both for its seeds or fresh young leaves. It is often referred to as Cilantro although Cilantro is actually the leaves of the plant. All parts of the plant are edible, the leaves taste very different than the seeds, similar to parsley but juicier & with a hint of citrus.
Available in 4" pots
Prefers a hot sunny location.
Harvest during early morning or late in the evening. The seed will have a very strong odour at first, but this will soften and become more lemony when the seed is thoroughly dry.
For an interesting take try using it in ice cream recipes - it is a fabulous complement for the sour notes of fruits such as rhubarb and lime.
