Plant cilantro in the spring after the last frost date; or in the fall. In the southwestern states, a fall planting may last through spring until the weather heats up again. Sow seeds in light, well-drained soil and space 1-2 inches apart. When transplanting space rows about 4-6 inches apart. This plant grows best in full sun, yet overheating causes the plant to bolt. Water young plants consistently for best growth. Avoid overwatering established plants. Harvest from 4-5 weeks after planting.
Cilantro & Coriander are Derived from the Same Plant. Cilantro is the stems and leaves, coriander is the seeds. Harvest cilantro frequently for controlled, continuous growth.
For a continued harvest through out the growing season, sow new seeds at 3-week intervals.
