Hi Cali, welcome to ATP!

>> Do you know where I can find culantro(NGOGAI)in Everett, WA?

I might be the only place with seeds, and I don;t have any dried leaves.
I bought my seed most recently from Kitazawa Seeds, if Baker Creek is still out of stock.
http://www.kitazawaseed.com/seed_374-185.html

I should check my stash before promising, but if I have some seeds left, I can send some to you. It's best not to post your street address publicly, but if you double-click on my name, you can send me an ATP-email ("Tree Mail"). I probably do have some seeds left.

If you live in Everett, they would probably prefer more heat than we usually get.


Culantro = Ngo Gai = Eryngium foetidum

Vietnamese herb similar to cilantro but with a stronger flavor
[A] 80-90 days, slow growth

Short--lived Perennial in mild climates

Other names:
mui tau, ngo tau, Mexican coriander, thorny coriander, spiny coriander, fitweed, saw-leaf or saw-tooth herb, recao and Tabasco parsley

Cut entire rosette at base before plant flowers.
Sow Spring to early summer.
Leaves retain color and flavor when dried.
Use leaves & roots in stews, soups & sauces
