A cilantro that’s hardy

Have never been able to get cilantro to grow in our hot dry climate…this one did. Fantastic plant, so fragrant! A real winner

Hmm, d.l.t.s.
Does not look like cilantro at all

These were extremely ferny looking, and did not like like their picture. Not sure what happened, but they're too thin/spindly to use, although they at least smell like cilantro. In our garden, they looked more like a small spiky, ferny foxtail, like... (had to look it up) confetti cilantro. Not appetizing enough to eat, besides the initial tasting. Won't be trying them again.

slow to bolt

The first year I planted these they were very slow to bolt compared to the other variety I had growing. Was very pleased. The second year, they bolted a bit quicker but the weather was very different also. I personally didn't notice a taste difference between this variety and any other I've had. I used this fresh from the garden and froze plenty for winter use both years. Will purchase again.

Not a fan

With only 1 review I decided to give these a shot. Since the only other review mentioned a soapy taste I was hoping that it might have been a fluke and I wanted to hedge my bet so I planted these in hydro, aquaponics, and in the garden. Sadly, it didn't make a difference. Of those plants that grew (50% germ rate) they grew really well and looked nice but they had a very fragrant almost perfumey scent and flavor. Similar to citrus bar soap, not the traditional cilantro that I know and love. I would not order these again and unless a soapy taste is your thing I would pass on these.

Germination Codes
Check the code at the end of the description for specific germination requirements.
(1) Germinates at temperatures between 60-75°F.
(2) Larger seeds need to be covered with soil at least as thick as the seed itself. May be slow and erratic to germinate.
(3) These seeds need a period of cold stratification for successful germination. Best results are obtained when the seeds are kept warm and moist for 2 weeks followed by temperatures of 33-35°F for 4-6 weeks or until germination starts.
(4) No special requirements, but germination may be slow and erratic.

• Fertile, well-drained soil provides the best results• Harvest and fertilize regularly to encourage vegetative growth
• Apply 1 cup of TSC's Complete fertilizer per 5 row feet, and 1 inch of compost
• For leafy herbs snip off flower buds as they appear

• Start seeds 6-8 weeks before anticipated transplant date
• Small seeds (thyme, savory, marjoram, oregano) can be gently pressed onto surface of the soil—don't cover or bury seed
• Fertilize with Age Old Grow every 10-14 days for optimum growth
• Small seedlings such as thyme, savory and sweet marjoram may be successfully transplanted in small clumps
• Hardy herbs can be transplanted after the last frost
• Transplant tender herbs after last frost when weather has stabilized

Harvest & Storage
• Fresh use: Harvest only as needed
• Drying: Harvest at peak maturity, hang small bunches from ceiling in a dry, warm (80-90°F), dark location with good ventilation for 1-2 weeks
• Distilling: Harvest when blooms are just beginning to appear; at this point the leaves contain the highest level of essential oils
