Name: Calypso Cilantro
Scientific Name: Coriandrum sativum
Family: Apiaceae

An annual herb in the family Apiaceae. All parts of the plant are edible, but the fresh leaves and the dried seeds are the parts most traditionally used in cooking. Calypso Cilantro is known to go to bolt a little later/slower than other varieties, making it a good choice for prolonged cultivation.

Origination: Iran
Height: 12-18”
Hardiness: zones: 3-11
Maturity: 30 days

Growing Instructions:
Cilantro needs a frost free period to grow but it doesn’t like extreme heat. So in milder climates you grow cilantro during summer, in tropical climates you grow it during fall. Always grow cilantro from seed, directly where you want it. Because cilantro has a taproot, it hates being transplanted. That being said, cilantro does best in a mostly sunny location, and regular watering. It’s important that the plants never dry out. cilantro has no special soil requirements. Rich, dark soil always produces the biggest, healthiest plants, but any reasonable soil with average nutrient levels should be fine.
