The small white or pink blossoms that emerge in bunches as cilantro plants mature are what produce the seeds. Coriander (Coriandrum sativum), a member of the parsley plant family Apiaceae, is sometimes known as Chinese or Mexican parsley.
Producing cilantro, a herb with flat leaves akin to parsley, is more complicated than growing a typical herb. A spice with a lemony flavor and fragrance may also be found there.
Some gardeners love cilantro because of its somewhat peppery and lemony flavor. Others assert that cilantro has a harsh, soapy, or metallic flavor. Genetic variances may affect how cilantro tastes and smells to each individual, which helps to explain why some people enjoy it and others despise it.
