Cilantro

tamsea(z-5 Ohio)May 21, 2011

I love Cilantro. They had two varieties at the store and I bought them both. Which is best? Coriandrum sativum (reg), Coriandrum sativum (delfindo).

Do most of you just grow herbs in your garden, or do you put it in pots on your patio?

I realize that Cilantro bolts fairly quickly. Do most of you just replant it from seed to keep some growing?

Direct sow cilantro (coriander seed). Water. weed. harvest as needed. A couple weeks elapses during this time...

Repeat process for a steady supply of leaf.

I can only grow cilantro when lettuce wil grow. Too hot for lettuce, than too hot for cilantro.

Cilantro, one of my favorite herbs. You can plants this herb in a pot to put in your window inside your home or you can plant outside.

Delfino coriander is supposed to be fernier and slower-bolting than regular. I'd try both and see which you like better.

In zone 5, you can probably grow it during most of the summer. Re-seed often for a steady supply.

Tracy...a good thing to remember, thanks.
EnjoyHerbalGardening - I'm not sure if I have enough space or light there, but I think I'll try it because I just love it.
nygardener - just bought both, so I'll see if I like the other. thanks.

Here in Michigan I let it go to seed at the end of the season and it will come up in bunches by itself the next year.
