Coriander

R25.00

The entire coriander plant (also known as Chinese parsley), is edible but interestingly, the leaves and the seeds are very different in compounds, use and taste.
Patience is needed for the seeds to germinate. It is an annual and needs to be replanted yearly.
Called Dhania in india, Cilantro (only the leaves) in Spanish.
