A quick growing, dual purpose annual herb that is grown for its seeds or fresh young leaves. Coriander seeds are delicious in cakes, and when crushed add an orangey flavour to meat dishes. The young leaves of coriander (often called 'Cilantro') can be finely chopped and added to curies, sauces, chutneys and salads. 

Sowing

Direct sow coriander seed outdoors from April to July in light, well-drained, fertile soil, which has been raked to a fine tilth. Choose a position in full sun. Sow seed thinly at a depth of 1cm (1/2") in rows 30cm (12") apart. When large enough to handle, thin seedlings to 23cm (9") apart. Make regular sowings for a constant supply. Can also be sown in late summer for winter use, with cloche protection and full light for quality foliage production.
 
More Info

Coriander plants can quickly run to flower if not kept watered. When growing coriander for its leaves, remove the flowering stems as they occur to prolong quality leaf production.
