Answer: I, too, love salsa with lots of cilantro. I also love seafood with cilantro, Chinese food with cilantro, cilantro on my scrambled eggs, street tacos with cilantro, cilantro on my guacamole.... but enough. To get produce-quality cilantro, sow seeds direct in fall or late winter (in Southern California). Make sure you have a light but moisture retentive soil (lots of organic matter). Keep the young plants moist-- not soggy -- and feed regularly but lightly with a balanced plant food. Avoid stresses of heat, dryness, or transplanting which will cause bolting (early stretching and flowering).
