Plant Type: Tender Perennial
Where To Plant: Full Sun to Partly Shady
Soil Types: Average
Zones (See US Zone map): 11-13 Needs Heat.  Good pot plant.
Germination: Medium.  Do not over-water the young seedlings for they will dampen off easily. 
Number of Seeds Per Pack: 50
Uses: Culinary
Notes: Use like Coriander in Asia and Latin American. Can be dried and used later in salads and cooking.

Native to Central America, but now cultivated throughout Southeast Asia and Latin America. Favored where the true coriander (Coriandrum sativum) does not do well because it can stand hot, steamy weather. Leaves are tough, but if sliced and then chopped they are quite tasty. Unlike other corianders, this variety dries well, retaining good color and flavor, and it can stand some cooking - properties that may become significant to the dried spice market.
