Cilantro, Santo (Coriandrum sativum) - 100 Seeds
Originally, the herb was grown in present day Greece and was utilized by ancient Egyptians and Romans, making cilantro one of the oldest known herbs in history. Cilantro is a fantastic herb that has a very distinctive flavor and aroma. The seeds of cilantro plants are called coriander and are used as a spice in many dishes. This quick growing plant sets seeds fast, so it is a good idea to continually cut back for best flavor. If used for coriander it is good to plant plants in succession. 'Santo' is a variety that is somewhat slower to bolt, or go to seed, than the classic variety.
