Cilantro is a cool-weathered herb and they are wonderful plants to grow in your garden. Their seeds are known as coriander seeds and both cilantro leaves and seeds are used in different cuisines all over the world. Harvesting cilantro seeds the right way is important and they require maturity before the seeds can be harvested.
Growing cilantro from seeds directly by sowing the seed in a garden bed is pretty easy. If you wish to grow cilantro with the aim of harvesting their seeds, then you should plant seeds 8 inches apart in rows.
Let your cilantro plant enter the bolting stage especially during the hot season. When you notice the leaves and seeds becoming brown, cut off the stem. The harvested stem should be hung upside-down in a paper bag in a cool dry place.
