Cilantro, also known as Chinese Parsley, is an annual herb. The entire plant is edible, but the leaves and the dried seeds are the most commonly used in cooking. Along with other nutritional values, it contains Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and Vitamin K.
This particular cilantro grows in a planting pot under the patio where it gets around eight hours of sunlight and shade in the afternoon. The potting allows the water to drain but also keeps the soil moist. This cilantro is watered daily in the late afternoon.
Cilantro is a good source of fiber and is easy to grow and maintain.
