Grown on the farm, we love this versatile fine herb in latin, asian and indian cooking. It is a great pollinator plant that attracts all sorts of insects and thrives in half shade. The original seeds are from my very first visit to a seed conference in Corvalis, Oregon. They were just lying there on the seed swap table begging me to take them home and I am happy I did. Slow bolting and resistant to downy mildew, this coriander has proven to be quite resilient in my garden.
