What are the pros? Long time to bolt.

What are the cons? Nothing

Review:

Grew two varieties of cilantro this year and this one by far took much longer to bolt in the Texas heat. It took roughly 3 more weeks to bolt than the other variety. Seed is small so it is no good for coriander but plants are compact and don't spread out they just climb straight. It is a good space saver.

Review:

Flavor is excellent. It outlasted all of the other cilantro in the garden. It grew beautifully, after being planted by my 4 year old. I received just a handful of seeds from my seed library and I am so in love that I am buying more. Thank you!

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.

What are the pros? Easy, fast, slow bolting

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.
