Coriander image Coriander

Botanical Name: Coriandrum sativum
Other Names: Dhaniya, Cilantro, Kusbarah, Coriandro, Pak chi, Ketumbar

Coriander is usually grown from seed. It requires lots of warmth for germination and grows best in a warm sunny area. It has a large taproot considering its size and best sown in its final growing place as it does not transplant well. The herb will grow relativily easily in the UK - sow seeds in a deep pot (atleast 25cm) throughtout the spring and summer or in the garden in a sunny spot from late spring, it will germinate in 7 to 15 days and be ready for use after about 5 weeks. The seeds should be relativily fresh (less than 12 months) and if whole, crush them a little first. It can grow to 50cm but is best used as a fresh herb before it is fully grown while leaves are still large (1 to 1.5 cm) and flowers have not formed. If you want the seeds then leave the plant to flower and set seed, which can take another 3 to 6 weeks.
