Coriandrum sativum. A slow bolting, fast-growing annual herb, variable in shape, with erect stems that have leaves broadly lobed at the base of the plant, and slender and feathery higher on the flowering stems. The plant produces an oval-shaped fruit which is yellow-brown in color and contains two seeds used as the spice coriander.

Additional instructions: Coriander/Cilantro is a member of the Carrot family and can be partnered with anise, caraway, potatoes and dill in your garden. Water regularly and fertilize when the plants are 4″ (10 cm) tall. Cilantro will supply calcium, iron and vitamins A and C. 
Harvesting instructions: Pick the lower leaves sparingly as the plants grow. They may be used whole or minced. Use fresh leaves for the best flavor. Snip the tops to prevent bolting. Hang whole plants or leafy stems in a cool dry spot until completely dry and then remove leaves and store in an airtight container. To save seeds, cut the entire stem when the seeds begin to darken and fall, cut the entire stem and place upside down in a paper bag, to catch the seeds as they dry.
