Coriander (or cilantro) is considered both an herb and a spice since both its leaves and its seeds are used as a seasoning condiment. Fresh coriander leaves are more commonly known as cilantro and bear a strong resemblance to Italian flat leaf parsley. This is not surprising owing to the fact that they belong to the same plant family (Umbelliferae). The fruit of the coriander plant contains two seeds which, when dried, are the parts that are used as the dried spice.

Standard Cilantro

Since it is highly perishable, fresh coriander should always be stored in the refrigerator. Wrap the coriander leaves in a damp cloth or paper towel and place them in a plastic bag.

We also grow a variety of cilantro called Delfino. Delfino is an aromatic, edible herb, and unlike other coriander has unique, fine fern-like foliage. The leaf flavor is similar to a strong parsley taste with citrus. The fine 'Delfino' foliage is perfect for recipes, such as salsas, requiring finely chopped leaves. Less chopping is needed.
