Standard cilantro is a slow-bolting selection grown for its leaves.
Like the leaves and seeds, the flowers are also edible.
Edible Flowers: Use them raw because the flavor fades quickly when cooked. Sprinkle to taste on salads, bean dishes, chicken, and spicy southwestern dishes. Flavor is of mild cilantro.
Attracts Beneficial Insects: if allowed to flower, provides pollen and nectar for beneficial insects such as bees, hoverflies, and tachinid flies.
Grown year-round in the Tower Garden®.
