Cilantro is also known as coriander or Chinese parsley (cilantro is the Spanish word for coriander). In the U.S. ‘cilantro’ refers to the leaves and plant; coriander refers to the seed used as a culinary herb.

Though it doesn’t directly repel insect pests in the garden the way, say, basil does, cilantro attracts beneficial insects that can keep the destructive ones at bay. These beneficial insects tend to lay eggs on garden plants; the hatched larvae will feed on insect pests.

Cilantro is reported to be a good digestive aid. Of course, like all plant food, it contains fiber that aids digestion, but, supposedly, it also has properties that can prevent other gastrointestinal problems like bloating and heartburn.

GROWING CILANTRO—HIGHLIGHTS

• Savory, distinctive-tasting Cilantro has long been a key ingredient in Asian and Mexican cuisine; its popularity in a wide variety of dishes has soared in recent years.
• Some people seem to hate cilantro and claim it tastes like soap. They are not imagining it.
• Cilantro is not difficult to grow from seed but gardeners should be aware that while it likes sun, it doesn’t like hot weather which makes it bolt.
• The best way to ensure a steady supply of cilantro on hand is to plant new seeds successively.
• Cilantro is a good source of fiber and potassium.
