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
