Coriander, or cilantro, is an important herb not only in Asian cooking, but also in Mediterranean, Mexican and French cuisine.
Many have a love or hate relationship to coriander. For some, coriander tastes like soap, while others love the the hint of ginger and fresh, citrus-like flavour. If you are among the lucky ones who has the ‘coriander-gene’, and simply love the taste, you’ll be pleased to hear of its versatility in cooking. In addition, many Plantui customers are converts to coriander, giving feedback on the plant’s palatable flavour. But don’t take our word for it – try it yourself!

Coriander germinates in 8-10 days and can be harvested for the first time 3-4 weeks after sowing.
Harvest by cutting the outermost parts of the coriander near the base. New growth takes place in the mid section of the plant.
It’s important not to let the coriander plant bloom or allow the leaves to grow long as this will cause the plant to take on a bitter taste. The optimal time for coriander growth is about two months, after which new seeds should be sown.
