Cilantro and rosemary are the only plants I can actually get going w/ minimal fuss. I've grabbed 2 year old seeds, dropped them in w/ the usual planting mix, and had success. The hardest part of cilantro is rotation; right when there are enough good leaves to make food w/, it's gonna start bolting. You have to have multiple plants on different schedules.

It's my opinion that people who love cilantro and people who dislike it actually share the same qualia,  but a ton of weirdoes out there love the taste of grassy soap.

Team Culantro. I never tried it from seed but it seems fairly available in farmer's markets. Seems to do well if watered daily? [allowed to dry out a bit] and bright indirect windowsill; anecdotal. It's more intense and you can chiffonade the leaves, just keep it from budding.

When it starts to bolt, you can just pinch off the upper stalk so it stops feeding energy into seeds and resumes energizing the tasty, tasty leaves.

Have a fraind who is actualy deathly alergic. Throat closeing difficulty breathing use eppie pen and go to the hospital type alergy. Yet wait staff dont always belive its an issue till they put the epi pens on the table.
Pesonaly i hate the stuff. Not becouse of a soap taste, its just overpowering and nasty.
I dont understand why its so popular in kitchens if 1/3 of your customers are geneticly disposed to hate it.

I spent the first half of my life thinking it tasted like soap, but about ten years ago that sensation went away. I now cook with it all the time.

You have to hit Latin grocery stores.  For some reason in my area (DC Metro), it's almost always in plastic bags, unlike the other greens and herbs.

But there's usually 2 bunches per bag.

I don't know if that's true in all areas, but it makes it easy to find in the stores as I look to see where they have greens, then look for the bags.

I should probably try growing my own

/can't stand cilantro leaves
//the roots are okay, though
