|I recently dined at a restaurant where I tasted Vietnamese cilantro for the first time. I would like to find a source for seed for this herb and have not had any success. Can you help me with possible sources, and some background information on this variety of cilantro? Thanks.

|You are probably having a hard time finding it because it is known by more than one name. A more common name for Vietnamese Cilantro is Vietnamese Coriander. The great thing about it is you can grow it as a perennial indoors under grow lights. It is available from Richters Herbs as plants or plug trays. You can reach them at 1-905-640-6677 or www.richters.com.
