Slow bolt cilantro is a variety of cilantro known for its ability to produce leaves for a longer period of time before bolting (going to seed) compared to other varieties. It has a strong, pungent flavor that is commonly used in many dishes like salsa, guacamole, and curries. This variety is certified as organic.
To grow Slow Bolt Cilantro, you will need:
Well-drained, fertile soil
Cool temperatures (60-65F is ideal)
Full sun or partial shade
Prepare the soil by tilling or digging to a depth of at least 8 inches. Add compost or other organic matter to improve the soil's fertility.
Sow the seeds in the spring, after the last frost date, or in the fall. Space the plants about 6 inches apart, and cover with 1/4 inch of soil.
Water the cilantro regularly, keeping the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged.
Fertilize the cilantro with an organic fertilizer every 4-6 weeks.
Harvest the cilantro leaves as needed, but avoid cutting too much of the stem, to ensure the plant will continue to produce leaves for a longer period.
