Calypso Coriander/Cilantro

Calypso Coriander/Cilantro

HR1133

NEW! Most gardeners resort to successive plantings of coriander seed if they want lengthy harvests of fresh cilantro, but Calypso is changing that! The slowest bolting variety we've found, it consistently holds 3 weeks longer than our most popular variety. This robust grower produces lots of deliciously clean-flavored leaves for fresh tasting dressings, dips and sauces. Approximately 110 seeds per gram.

Germination Codes
Check the code at the end of the description for specific germination requirements.
(1) Germinates at temperatures between 60-75°F.
(2) Larger seeds need to be covered with soil at least as thick as the seed itself. May be slow and erratic to germinate.
(3) These seeds need a period of cold stratification for successful germination. Best results are obtained when the seeds are kept warm and moist for 2 weeks followed by temperatures of 33-35°F for 4-6 weeks or until germination starts.
(4) No special requirements, but germination may be slow and erratic.

Culture
• Fertile, well-drained soil provides the best results
• Harvest and fertilize regularly to encourage vegetative growth
• Apply 1 cup of TSC's Complete fertilizer per 5 row feet, and 1 inch of compost
• For leafy herbs snip off flower buds as they appear

Transplanting
• Start seeds 6-8 weeks before anticipated transplant date
• Small seeds (thyme, savory, marjoram, oregano) can be gently pressed onto surface of the soil—don't cover or bury seed
• Fertilize with Age Old Grow every 10-14 days for optimum growth
• Small seedlings such as thyme, savory and sweet marjoram may be successfully transplanted in small clumps
• Hardy herbs can be transplanted after the last frost
• Transplant tender herbs after last frost when weather has stabilized

Harvest & Storage
Fresh use: Harvest only as needed
Drying: Harvest at peak maturity, hang small bunches from ceiling in a dry, warm (80-90°F), dark location with good ventilation for 1-2 weeks
Distilling: Harvest when blooms are just beginning to appear; at this point the leaves contain the highest level of essential oils
