Chef Aaron’s tips for growing Cilantro!

The most important thing to remember when growing CILANTRO is that it does not like hot weather. Cilantro growing in soil that reaches 75F will bolt and go to seed. This means that the ideal cilantro growing conditions… are cool but sunny. You should be growing cilantro where it will get early morning or late afternoon sun, but be shaded during the hottest part of the day. Even with ideal cilantro growing conditions, this is a short lived herb. Taking the time to prune cilantro frequently will help delay bolting and prolong your harvest time but no mater how much you prune cilantro it will still eventually bolt. Plant new Sweet Valley Herb Cilantro about every 3 – 4 weeks to keep a steady supply throughout the growing season!
