The leaves of Coriandrum sativum are used fresh in soups, salads and salsas. When used as a fresh, green seasoning as described, it is called "Cilantro." Left to mature and develop fruit in the late summer, the crop you harvest, that is its seeds, are used as a flavoring for meats, pickles, sausages, and sauces. In this seed form, the spice is known as "Coriander."
Easy to grow from seed and is an annual that will reseed itself under favorable conditions. Each packet contains one gram, which is approximately 70 seeds.
