Pretty tender leaf. If you like cilantro, you will love this herb. Tastes like cilantro with a touch of mint, parsley, citrus and floral tones. Complex and compelling.

Grows easily. The pods grow and are visible, and it looks like they never mature. The plant hides them under the growing leaves, and they open like dark dandelions.
