Coriander is a double duty herb. Its seeds are known as coriander and its leaves are known as cilantro. This herb has a very distinct taste that is best described as a fresh-green spice, and it is a perfect addition for indoor and kitchen gardens.
Cilantro resembles flat parsley in its appearance and is sometimes called Chinese parsley. With its refreshing, cooling taste, it is easy to see why cilantro is used with the spicy dishes so common to Latin cuisine.
