Cilantro

In Northeast Pennsylvania, cilantro can be planted in early spring. It can be grown indoors and transplanted or sown directly into the ground. Once growing, if properly trimmed, cilantro will continue to form leaves similar in appearance to celery and flat-leaf parsley until the soil becomes warm (about 75°F). Otherwise, the plant will start to flower and form seeds. The plant will reseed itself, and another harvest will be ready in 60 days or less if there is enough sunshine and rainfall. Seeds can also be harvested, dried and ground into a spice called coriander.
