Related to Cilantro, this herb is stronger in flavor and more heat tolerant than Cilantro. It will grow in full sun with well drained soil. It is compact in nature and will do well in a pot or in the garden. This herb goes well with vegetable and meat dishes. The flowers should be pinched back to keep the leaves from becoming bitter.
