Culantro Sawtooth Herb Seeds

HR1176A - Culantro Sawtooth Herb

Regular price $4.99 $0.00

Also known as Mexican coriander, this strongly flavoured herb is widely used in Latin American and southeast Asian cuisines. Its sharp flavour combines nicely with mint, cilantro, and other strongly flavoured herbs. It is a standard fixture on Vietnamese herb plants, and provides a wonderful contrast with peppery soups and salad rolls. Culantro saw tooth herb grows as a perennial in the tropics, but it should be treated more as a heat loving annual in North American gardens. It works well in containers, raised beds, and any place where the soil tends to be on the warm side. It dries well, keeping its fine flavour.

Annual.

  • AKA Vietnamese coriander
