Cilantro, coriander, cumin (cumino)

I have a cilantro plant that has already gone to seed. It is my understanding the seeds are coriander and you grind them for cumin/cumino. Is this correct? At what point do you pick the seeds? Do you just let them dry before use?

RE: Cilantro, coriander, cumin (cumino)

Cumin and Coriander are two different things. Coriander is the dried seed of Cilantro and is round like a b-b shot.

Cumin seed is narrow and pointy on each end.

I don't know when to pick the seeds. I always miss mine. This year I intend to wrap some cheesecloth or paper around them to catch the seeds when they dry and fall.
