Description:
An elegant way to add cilantro flavor to dishes, compared to using the standard, full-size chopped leaves. Widely used in Mexican, Asian, and fusion cuisine and a nice flavor component in fish and seafood dishes.

Culinary Properties:
Cilantro can be used in a number of ways. The leaves can be enjoyed raw or cooked. It adds excellent flavor to salads, salsa, chutney, pesto, sauces, dips, and dressings. It's most commonly added just before a dish is served or as a garnish on top because heat diminishes its flavor.

Nutritional Value:
Packed with vitamins, minerals, and fiber (Over 220% Vitamin C, also Vitamin A & B6, calcium, iron, and magnesium), these nutrients can help with preventing a range of diseases, managing weight, boosting both mental and physical health and well-being. Microgreens can offer all of these benefits and possibly more. The many health benefits of cilantro include strong antioxidant activity, anxiolytic effects, and as a natural protectant against cardiovascular disease.

Growing Instructions:
Grow on potting mix or soilless medium of your choice in shallow 1020 style trays or 20-row flats. Broadcast seed thickly on the media surface with seeds roughly 1/4" apart, press seeds firmly into the media for maximum soil contact, and cover lightly with sowing mix, vermiculite, or humidity dome. Microgreens can be germinated on heat mats, in germination chambers, or on greenhouse benches or floors. Bottom water or mist to prevent sowing mix from splashing on the seedlings. Maintain even moisture and do not allow sowing medium to dry out. Consider supplemental lighting in any environment where natural light is insufficient, such as in a greenhouse during the short days of winter.
