  • EMERGES: 15-20 days
  • MATURES: Baby greens in 20 days, mature plants in 35-45 days

SOWING:

  • Plant seed outdoors where the plants are to remain because they do not transplant well.
  • Succession planting every 2 weeks from early spring into late summer will provide a continual harvest of fresh leaves.
  • Scatter seed 2 inches apart.
  • Cover with 1/2 inch of fine soil, pressed firmly down.

GERMINATION:

  • Germinates in 15-20 days depending on soil and weather conditions.

THINNING:

  • When plants are 2-3 inches high, thin out extra plants by cutting them off at the soil line, allowing mature plants to grow 6-10 inches apart.
  • Try not to disturb the soil around the plants that are to remain (which could cause them to bolt).
  • Eat your thinnings!

NOTES:

  • Cilantro is a popular baby or micro-green.
