Building a Papalo Plant Growbed

Link to find Papalo on Ebay:

We are looking forward to having a cilantro replacement here on the homestead. We love having flavorful foods and all of us are fans of cilantro. But its so hard to grow without it bolting to seed before you really get a lot out of the plant. The papalo plant may be the solution to the problem.

  1. Also in Northwest Arkansas and we’re eating cilantro out of our garden now. It has self-seeded for years, though it’s not weedy and just conveniently pops up with enough in the garden. The plants we are eating off of now (as well as the arugula) were small self-seeded plants over the winter with no protection from the weather. They began to put on leaves with the lengthening day, and like I said are harvestable size now (the arugula is even starting to bloom and I find the blooms milder and more tasty than the leaves). The cilantro will last a couple months and then go to bloom (flowers also delicious, and then the seeds are coriander so save some for cooking). Cilantro will then seed itself and you should get some harvest in the fall. It’s 3+ cool season months of fresh leaves with no effort at all, but unfortunately there’s never cilantro here during tomato salsa making season!
