    Cilantro!!!

    Ok, seemed that the pro cilantro crowd was taking over the food hate thread.

    A couple of great ideas were posted. If I buy some cilantro at a place like whole foods, is it possible to plant them and have them take root or do I just need to go get some potted cilantro?

    hmmm cilantro...I used to despise the stuff...soapy flavour etc. Now I use it in all my mexican dishes. After I went to mexico and saw it used properly and tasted the sheer awesomeness of it with a little baby lime (don't know what they are called, but they are better than normal limes)...hmmmmmm

    hmmmm mexican....why the hell can't I find a decent mexican restaurant in the timberland of ice and snow...arg

    Buy cilantro potted; it will not sprout. Late in the season it will seed, which you can dry and plant, or have coriander to grind

    Not a big cilantro fan, some. But when I love it when I use it to make sofrito.

    Plant seeds once the soil is warm. Nice sunny spot. Replant about every two weeks. You can either keep cutting it back or let it go to seed -- the seeds, as mentioned above, are coriander.
    May your tires or beer never be flat.

    NOT TRUE! I planted cilantro seeds a couple weeks ago. I just noticed them popping thru the soil yesterday!

    FINALLY found Cilantro & a few other herb seeds at Lowe's (many places don't carry them this time a year).
    i woke up one morning and i stepped out of bed | had to get a bike, had to paint it red
    Of all the treasures I have, itís the memories that are the most precious.

    No, I meant it won't sprout from cuttings. He wanted to buy a bunch and plant the stems.

    I grow cilantro every year, generally from seeds. I save the seeds after the plant starts to die. If you don;t have seeds, buy a seedling from a nursery (available in late spring) and make sure to cut it back during the growing season or it will go to seed early. Once summer is over, let it seed and collect same. BTW the seeds are coriander and good in sauces and on chicken.

    Nothing better than fresh cilantro. I can't get enough of its fresh herby smell!

    It is an annual and seems to grow best from seeds.

    You could try rooting a stem in some moist potting mix or vermiculite.

    I love cilantro, but it's proven a pretty delicate plant in our house. We've planted cilantro twice and its died twice. Meanwhile, the basil went nuts until it got smothered by the tomatoes this year, the parsley's been going for years now, and the rosemary (my favorite) is chugging along.

    +1 on Cilantro! I've been eating Mexican Food for 50 years. Where has the stuff been hiding?

    Any plants I try to grow inside are eaten by the cat. I wonder if I can figure out a workaround, given that I really like fresh cilantro.

    My mom hangs pots of cilantro, basil, parsley, thyme from the ceiling by her kitchen window. They're up high enough that the cats can't get to them. She does need a ladder to cut whatever she wants to use but at least she gets to them instead of the beasties.

    +1 for cilantro. It's delicious scattered on top of curried lentils.

    That's great if you want your food to taste like bitter apple. YUCK!

    I know what you guys are doing. "Cilantro" is a code word for "Marijuana" isn't it?
