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.
The original seed was bred by Tim Peters from Peters Seed and Research, in Riddle, Oregon.
