Dwarf Coriander variety with subtle lemon scent and flavour. Adds fresh aromatic twist to salads and Asian dishes. Make successive sowings for continuous supply.
Recipe Tip: Use the fresh leaves and stalks as cilantro. Mature flowers will produce coriander seeds that can be dried and ground, perfect for flavouring cooked dishes.
Approx. 100 seeds
Outdoors: sow thinly, March-June, where they are to crop, 0.5cm (¼") deep, directly into finely-prepared, warm, well-drained soil, which has already been watered. Seedlings usually appear in 14-21 days. Thin seedlings to 20cm (8") apart. Water well until plants are established. For a continuous supply, make sowings at two to three week intervals.
Grow indoors all year round, sow thinly 0.5cm (¼") deep, in small pots of compost. Water well and place in a warm position. A temperature of 15-20°C (60-68°F) is ideal. Plants can be grown on a light windowsill.
Harvest: Indoor crops all year round, outdoor crops from May. Pick a few leaves, as required, from each plant so that they will regrow quickly. They may be dried or frozen, but for best flavour, use fresh.
Can be used in curries, chutneys or salads. When cooking, add the bruised leaves at the last minute to retain maximum flavour.
