We love cilantro in our garden! It has a strong, sweet and distinctive aroma that adds a bright flavor to your cooking. Not only is it an easy plant to grow, but it also boasts two cooking uses for the price of one. The name cilantro refers to the plant's thin, green stems and flat, lacy leaves, which are best eaten fresh. Its other common name, coriander, refers to the seeds, which are used as a common cooking spice, especially in Mexican, Indian, Middle Eastern, and Asian cuisines. All parts of the plant are edible! Pro tip: The stems often contain more flavor than the leaves so don’t be afraid to chop them up and include them in your cooking!
