UNTREATED AND OPEN POLLINATED SEEDS
THE garnish of many an Indian dish, the humble coriander (Dhaniya or Cilantro) is a must for most kitchen gardens
The coriander 'seed' is actually the dried fruit containing two seeds within it. When the fruit is split, it reveals these two seeds that will each become an individual plant. The splitting is therefore an important step in sowing coriander, since it hastens germination through scarification. Coriander can be split by rubbing some seeds between your palms with some degree of pressure so as to make them split.
Coriander needs full sun or light shade in tropical climates as it tends to bolt quickly in hot weather. It grows best in a well-drained, moist soil. It can be grown successfully both in pots as well as in the ground.
All parts of the plant are edible - roots (lots of deep flavour), stems, leaves and seeds.
To harvest fresh coriander all season, make successive sowings every 2 to 3 weeks starting during the main growing season (i.e. winter in the tropics).
