Regular cilantro seeds, or coriander as they are sometimes called, are actually little nutlets containing more than one true seed. Monogerm seeds have been split by the grower for more precise seeding, either in trays or direct in the field. Each half seed produces a single plant. This is the same Santo variety that has been bred for bolt resistance. For precision seeding with a field seeder or into plug trays, use Santo Monogerm Cilantro Seeds and get the exact number of plants you need for your organic vegetable garden. If the plants eventually bolt in the summer, be sure to harvest the flavourful taproot, which is useful in Thai and Vietnamese recipes.
