Cilantro - Santo / Coriandrum sativum

Includes 1 packet with minimum 100 seeds.

Santo is a standard slow-bolting selection grown for its leaves. Like the leaves and seeds (coriander), the flowers are also edible.

Attracts Beneficial Insects: if allowed to flower, provides pollen and nectar for beneficial insects such as, bees, hoverflies, and tachinid flies.

It thrives in humidity and is finicky in the heat. Sow seeds after the first frost or in early fall, avoiding the urge to start early and transplant. Cilantro is an herb that does its best when its seeds are sown directly in the soil
