Review:

It's really slower to bolt. To further this great quality during July and August, we plant densely in a semi-shaded area of the garden and cut often to keep under 12 cm (5'') height. This regular "hair-cut" prevents it from flowering. If we don't need what we cut, we just pack it really well at the bottom of snack-size zip bags and roll the bag to form a cilantro "dowel''. In the dead of winter, we just slice whatever thickness needed from a frozen "dowel" of cilantro to add to our cooking. Since it is a cool season herb, it pays to successive-sow, starting at the end of August, in a full-sun bed and cover it (low tunnel) before hard freezes. This allows us to further enjoy it fresh and raw in salads well into December. In fall and winter no need to give it a cut, it won't flower. We're a mixed-nationality family (Canadian and Moroccan). We cook lots of Moroccan food and we couldn't spend even 48 hours without cilantro in the fridge. Slo bolt is the only one we grow and use.

What are the pros? gives volunteers

What are the cons? Light taste

Review:

These cilantro seeds are definitely slower to bolt than some I'd used in previous years. The key to getting the seed to germinate is to make sure that your soil never dries out. Once you get a plant and it seeds, they will keep coming up as volunteers and/or you will get a few hundred seeds for the future off of just one plant. The cilantro taste is noticably lighter than that which you buy in the store.

Best Cilantro variety
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 5.0
 

What are the pros? Easy, fast, slow bolting

What are the cons? none

Review:

We tried another Cilantro variety and it bolted at the slightest hint of warm. So, we tried this variety and it was a night and day difference. They grew quickly and very well in our north facing garden. They tended to hang out closer to the shady parts and just kept on going. We will plant more of this for sure.

What are the pros? Great taste, healthy, organic.

What are the cons? Requires a lot of water

Review:

Cilantro is amazing, we use it all the time. Apparently it is high in vitamins, minerals, folic acid, S-adenosyl-L-methionine, 5-hydroxytryptophan. All of those organic and naturally occuring chemicals reduce the feelings of guilt.

What are the pros? Fast grower

What are the cons? None so far.

Review:

Good germination rates. Grows fast, produces very fragrant plants. A little goes a long way. It tastes and smells fantastic. Grows well even in small containers. Slow bolt does not mean no bolt. It will bolt, like any herb, if it gets very hot and sunny. Clip down the flowers to promote more leaf growth. Still, this is a good variety of cilantro. I will be growing it again as a staple.
