Coriander is very popular and widely used in cooking.
It is also used as a medicinal and aromatic plant, as a raw material for the manufacture of cosmetic preparations. Dry seeds are especially valued.
In addition, coriander is bred as a magnificent ornamental plant. Its delicate finely dissected leaves cover the bushes with a delicate green cloud.
In July-September, large inflorescences-umbrellas, consisting of small white-pink flowers, rise above it. They exude a unique aroma.
Then, round-shaped fruits begin to ripen in umbrellas. They are harvested, dried and used as a culinary condiment.
Inflorescences with immature green seeds can be cut, dried and used to make dried flower arrangements.
Usually, coriander bushes reach a height of 50 cm, but for decorative purposes, it is better to plant the variety "Bengal Giant", whose shoots grow twice as high.
They are easier to cut and dry.
Coriander seeds are sown in a sunny place in ordinary garden soil between March and May. They begin to germinate at a temperature of +4+6°C.
At a soil temperature at a seeding depth of +10+12°C shoots appear after 20-22 days, and at a temperature of +15+17°C at 10-12 days.
The plant is relatively cold hardy. Young plantings tolerate frosts down to -5°C. (In southern countries, coriander overwinters well).
Prefers light, fertile, moist and non-acidic soils. The plant is photophilous.

Eng.: Coriander, Chinese parsley, cilantro. Deu.: Blattkoriander.

Wonderful fruity aroma.
An annual essential oil and spice-flavoring plant of the umbrella family, 60-80 cm high. Cold-resistant, withstands -4-5°C.
The best predecessors are tilled crops. The most productive sowing is early spring (April - May), but winter sowing can also be used.
Seeding depth 2 cm, seeding rate 1 g/m2. The distance between rows is at least 25 cm, between plants - 6 cm. Seedlings appear in 2-3 weeks.
Care consists in loosening row spacings, weeding and watering.
To obtain a "green conveyor" crops are repeated after 18-20 days until mid-summer.
Greens are harvested before flowering and used for seasoning meat and vegetable dishes.
Seeds after full ripening (after 100-120 days) are used for making marinades and in baking.
Coriander is evidence that even an unpleasantly smelling plant can produce fruits that are pleasant in taste and smell.
Its name, which was used by Pliny, comes from the Greek "koris" (bug) and "anon" (anise).
Indeed, if you knead the fresh leaves of this plant, you will smell unpleasantly of bedbugs ...
However, its ripe fruits, used in combination with other spices, add a pleasant flavor to dishes.
For example, the basis of the well-known curry sauce is ground coriander seeds.
The leaves and stems of this crop are rich in vitamins B1, B2, C, P, carotene.
The fruits contain 0.2-1.0% essential oil and from 16 to 28% fatty industrial oil.
The main component of essential coriander oil is linalool, from which very valuable fragrant substances are obtained,
reminiscent of the smell of lemon, rose, violet, linden blossom.
The healing properties of coriander are due to the biological activity of the essential oil.
It has a variety of properties: choleretic, analgesic, antiseptic, wound healing and soothing.
In Indian medicine, coriander is used to increase the general tone of the body, as a diuretic, gastric and tonic.
