Coriander is a spicy leafy plant which is used as a herb. In its fresh state it is green in colour, has a pleasant fragrance and beautiful leaves which give it a distinct appeal. Its special features are dazzling white or very pale pink flowers, pungent seeds, an attraction for birds and butterflies and the beauty it adds to a garden.
In Kenya, coriander grows best in mild warm to cool weather and well drained alluvial soils, rich in organic matter. Kenya’s coriander continues to enjoy exceptional quality around the world because it is grown in well monitored conditions, letting it develop from original seeds through maturity to the flowering stage.
