Coriander is the English (UK) name for Cilantro. In America, Coriander is used to refer to the dried round seeds of the Cilantro plant, which have a warm, spicy flavor and are used in curries, pickles, sausages, soups, and stews. The essential oil of the seeds is used in herbal remedies and dietary supplements, and to flavor liqueurs, gin, vermouth, tobacco, and perfumes. Cilantro is an annual herb in the Apiaceae family with soft leaves that are broadly lobed at the base of the plant and become slender and feathery higher up the stems. The leaves will be ready to harvest within 50-55 days, the seeds take up to 100 days to mature and then need to be dried.
