Eryngium foetidum

Syn. Culantro, saw-leaf herb, sawtooth herb, long coriander
Mexican Coriander is a low growing plant with a rosette growth habit to 40 cm high. The leaves are stiff, long and deeply toothed; the flowers are spiky. It is a short-lived, frost tender perennial; treat it as an annual in cool areas. It has a very similar flavour to coriander but is much more able to cope with hot, humid weather.

It is a better choice for subtropical and tropical areas than common coriander as it also dries well and stands up to cooking. The leaves are used fresh or dried in curries, salads, chutneys and salsa. It grows well in containers and prefers partial shade.

Grown using organic heirloom open pollinated seed, no sprays, no chemicals in organic nutrient rich soil with gypsum, volcanic rock, minerals and compost in trays. No blood and bone no fish.
