Vietnamese Coriander

£5.99

Striking in appearance with a punchy tasty flavour
The top of the leaf is dark green, with chestnut-coloured spots, and the bottom of the leaf is burgundy red. This is a popular herb in Asian cooking. It’s very punchy in flavour and has quite a striking look. It’s a great alternative to traditional coriander that we’re so used to, the flavour is stronger and it’s less prone to bolting.

Number of plants: 3

Organic*

Can be grown in: Pots work well, but make sure they are deep as coriander likes to put down good roots. A raised bed would be good as well. Find out more in our growing guide below.

In the kitchen: Young leaves are delicious chopped fresh in salads. Use in stir fries and curries, added towards the end of cooking time to retain the subtle flavours. It works wonderfully as a flavouring alongside lime, chilli and lemon grass.

Delivery: Late August to October. These plants will arrive in 9cm pots.

Ready to harvest: March to October

*Transplants suitable for organic growing.
