No, we didn't misspell 'Cilantro', the classic Mexican herb!We are so excited to introduce our newest addition; Culantro, also known as 'Mexican Corriander' or 'Chadon beni', is a rare and unusual herb in our markets, but well known in Vietnam, Latin American and all over the Caribbean! This plant is quite similar to Cilantro in some ways, but has a more pungent and intense spicy flavor. Fresh or cooked, it is the perfect addition to marinades, soups, stews and salads. Use in place of cilantro, you'll be impressed by its kick! Easy to grow, this is a tough little plant with serrated leaves and a spiny flower stalk. Culantro makes a great container plant, and does best in part shade. It prefers moist soil. Known as 'Fitweed' in Guyana, this plant is filled with calcium and riboflavin. Used as a medicinal plant through the Caribbean to treat fevers and chills, vomiting, diarrhea as well as convulsions. The leaves can be eaten in the form of a chutney which is used as an appetite stimulant.
