Cilantro Herb Seeds  - Grow Cilantro seeds for this annual herb with an unmistakable strong scent and taste that has become the staple ingredient in salsa and other Mexican dishes. A member of the carrot family, Coriandrum Sativum Cilantro, grows easily from herb seeds, and it produces a flat, parsley-like leaf, and round herb seeds. Both the seeds (Coriander) and the leaves (Cilantro) are aromatic and flavorful being used in numerous foods around the globe. Cilantro Santo is a steady grower, giving lots of leaves to harvest for Cilantro. It blossoms in summer with tiny white to pale pink flower clusters. Bees, butterflies and birds are attracted to the flowers. To harvest Cilantro, snip the leaves for fresh use when the plant is 6 inches tall or more. Snip off just the top 2 - 3 inches of the plant to ensure continuous growth. Slow to bolt Cilantro allows a longer harvest of the leaves before the plant flowers. Two - three weeks after flowering, the plant sets small round, ribbed, beige-colored seeds in late summer. To harvest Coriander seeds, wait 2 - 3 weeks for seeds to dry. Before seed begins to fall, cut stems 8 inches long, bundle stems together with rubber bands, place a bag over the bundle, and hang up-side-down, allowing the dried seeds to fall into the bag.
