Coriandrum sativum. A family heirloom from Magdalena, Sonora, generously donated by Jesus Garcia. This seed was grown at the Tucson Village Farm. The fragrant cilantro leaves are useful in so many recipes ... and when it bolts, save the coriander seed to grind for recipes or to plant again. From our Seed Bank Collection.
- Origin: low desert, about 3300' elevation
- This is a cool season crop in the low desert ... elsewhere grow it in the spring.
- Approx. 1g/100 seeds per packet.
