About this Product

Coriander seed and powder (also known as dhania or cilantro) have a flavor similar to a blend of lemon, sage, and caraway. 

Matches well with beans, lentils, tomatoes, curry and soya mince loaf.

 

You can also use the seed to grow your own coriander patch. 

The first time I grew coriander I planted a shop bought plant out onto my yard. Within no time it had bolted and started to flower. The second time I grew some straight from seed and did not transplant it, this grew fine and produced a lot more leaves. Start coriander in early spring as the days warm.  

Coriander grows the best in light well drained soil in a sunny position and in a dry atmosphere. It does not really respond to well to high humidity or damp, so be careful not to over water. Don't plant near fennel is bad news for both plants.

Plant seeds directly in the soil in spring time, they should be thinly sown in shallow drills then covered with compost. If you are growing the plants for seed then they should be about 20 cm apart, if you are growing for the leaves then 5cm will be sufficient.

You can pick the young leaves whenever you like they should be about 10cm in height and bright green.

You will need to cut the flower stems as the seeds start to smell ok, otherwise they just come off and go everywhere. Cover bunches of about 6 heads together in a paper bag tie in up and hang it upside down in warm, dry and airy place. Leave it for about 2 weeks and the seed should have all come off.
