Coriandrum sativum 

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!
