This one is a customer favorite! It packs great flavor and provides pest fighting abilities. You won’t be disappointed with the yield. Santo Cilantro is a green leafy plant that produces a yield in the summer. For warmer climates you will receive a fall harvest. Pick leaves once they are tender at about 30 days. and be sure to keep flower buds pinched off. Its upright habit makes for a simple harvesting.

Santo Cilantro Plant Care

Sow seeds at one to two per an inch at a depth of ½”and twelve to eighteen inches, center on center. Plant in well drained moist soil with access to full sun or light shade. For a maximum harvest, pinch the young plant back an inch to encourage a fuller plant. In hot weather Santo Cilantro bolts quickly, keep a close eye on it.

Growing Santo Cilantro Plants

In thirty days after planting, leaves will begin to appear, and they can be harvested once tender. After 45 days seeds can be harvested. This cilantro is a wonderful self sower. Plant twelve to eighteen inches apart to ensure it has enough room. The summer season is optimal for this cilantro, sow seeds in late spring. For warmer climates growing can be done in the fall.

Grow in your herb garden, window box, or in containers. If indoor planting is desired, choose a pot that is eighteen inches wide and ten to twelve inches deep. Place in a space where it can receive the most sun. Use a rich well-drained, organic soil. Transplant every four to five weeks.

Watering Santo Cilantro Plants

Water until the plant drains, wait until soil is dry to water again.

Feeding Santo Cilantro Plants

Apply a water-soluble, garden balanced fertilizer once the plant reaches two inches in height. This will help produce a healthy yield.

Cilantro Bolting

If you have grown cool seasons edibles, you might have noticed they start to taste bad when the weather warms up. The plants start to grow quickly and begin to flower and your great tasting lettuce, or spinach, or cilantro starts tasting bitter. Your plant has officially bolted and there is nothing you can do about it. If you want to try again, you can cut the plant back and it might produce another crop if the weather cools down (sometimes in fall!). Otherwise, you can let your plant go to seed and collect the seeds for your fall crop or spring sowing next year.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
