(Eryngium foetidium) Also called Eryngo or Ngo Gai, this plant is very popular in Vietnam and Thailand; it is famous for its cilantro-like taste. This plant is a must for many South Asian dishes and grows very well in warm weather.

Review:

Seed is extremely short lived. Must be fresh, no more than 3 months or so or germination rate will plummet. Grows well in warm shade, but it must be shaded to survive. Ideal is in deep shade of tall trees, or use double thickness of shade cloth overhead. I've been cooking with it for years. It's like cilantro on steroids, but the beauty is that those who don't like the flavor of cilantro will like this. Cilantro tastes like soap to some folks due to a specific gene in their makeup, but since culantro is botanically unrelated, they don't experience the soap taste. I grow it as a houseplant in a NORTH facing window. I buy fresh seed every year, and plant within 90 days of purchase. It germinates best in 80 degree or warmer temps. Don't bury seed. Clip off flowers as they start to appear; they are painful to grab by mistake when harvesting leaves.

I could barely get the culantro to survive after sprouting. The ones that survive didn't taste so great.

Review:

Leaves are longer, straplike and thicker than cilantro. Flavor is similar, but stronger than cilantro. Cut flowers as they form to keep the plant productive. Flowers are thistle like and make harvesting leaves difficult if not removed. I live in Zone 10b and this plant is a perennial unless there is a hard frost. Do not let this plant dry out or it will die. Wait until the soil is dry only on top between waterings. I grow this with bunching onions interplanted with no bug problems for either plant.
