SOLD OUT FOR THE SEASON
Aside from basil, papalo seeds have quickly become our favorite herb on the homestead. We love cilantro and if you love cilantro too, then you will quickly fall in love with this plant as well. Papalo seeds are widely grown in Mexico and Central America. It is a staple herb in those regions and is quickly becoming very popular here in the US as well.
Why Papalo Seeds?
Why is this plant becoming so popular? It’s no secret that many people love cilantro in their salsa or with tomatoes in their favorite pico de gallo recipe. However, by the time the mid summer has come around and tomatoes are being harvested and fresh pico dip is on the mind, your favorite cilantro plant has bolted and is dying back. DOH!
The Papalo herb provides an amazing cilantro substitute for your salsa or pico de gallo recipes in mid summer! When mixed with your recipe, its almost impossible to tell the difference between its use and that of cilantro. And at mid summer, this plant is just getting started and will provide tons of output before fall frosts get here. Not only that, but seed pods look very similar to dandelions and are very easy to gather and save for next year. A win, win!
If you like cilantro and get frustrated that your plants bolt too fast, this is the plant for you! Give it a try!
PAPALO SEEDS GROWING DIRECTIONS:
Provide fresh and rich growing soil. Plant 1/2 inch deep and keep the soil moist watering once per day if needed. Give full sun. Plants will suffer if they go too long without water in high heat. We layered our grow beds with rabbit manure and overlaid with cheap potting soil from the hardware store. We kept them watered and they grew to a height of 7 feet. You will need to gather seeds and replant each year.
Each packet contains one seed pod (approximately 30-50 seeds)

Great grower! Loved it last year and saved the seeds for this year! It really does taste like cilantro. NEVER BOLTS and will grow all summer.

I just received my papalo seeds! Super fast shipping! I can’t wait to get them in the ground. My cilantro bolted way before my tomatoes were ready for salsa making.

Great seeds. Great growth. Great yield. Great food. Need I say more? Can’t beat Papalo from An American Homestead!
We grew giant papalo plants, they are great on salads and on burgers. The papalo grew to about five feet tall, it’s amazing!

Amazing plant. I put maybe a dozen seedlings in my garden and they grew like a week. Though it was shaded by my monster tomato (it was 8 feet tall), it grew to 4 feet and still has plenty of green leaves on it on 11/30/2018 in coastal VA. Plenty of seeds to harvest also. I used this for my homemade salsa.
