This cilantro relative, sometimes called 'Saw Tooth Mint' is a staple in many Caribbean and Latin dishes.
Cook's Garden Favorite. 30-60 days. Culantro has the same earthy fragarnace and flavor of cilantro but with a great pungency. Can be used in marinades, soups, stews, atop salads, and in any other way cilantro would commonly be used.

Tough, PickyI planted this last year and I found it very picky in the sense that it has tiny spines on the leaves that make it difficult to eat. It did last all season, though.

Sad storyI can't really give a review on this purchase as it was eaten right to the ground right after I planted it. I gave the purchase 5 stars because the plants arrived in perfect condition and in a timely manner. I've had a lot of problems with rabbits this year. I'd love to try this plant again next season.

First harvest was only harvestI received the culantro as promised. It seemed a little 'mature' from the outset. I followed the instructions and harvested carefully. My friend was able to cook with the first batch and awaited the second. The second never came as 2 of the plants have died and the third is struggling. I will try again next year.

Fantastic flavor, but failed to thriveI first encountered culantro (aka chadon beni) on a recent trip to Trinidad, and was delighted to be able to buy plants for my garden. The plants looked pretty good and tasted amazing, but unfortunately never got much larger than they were when the arrived; they never grew to look anything like the photo on this posting. It was a rough summer season though, so I'm going to give them another shot under better conditions next year.
