Round-leafed cilantro for my garden
I have seen--but only a few times--once in Vietnam--a small, round leafed herb that must be a type of coriander (cilantro). In fact, when I first started gardening 15 years ago, I accidentally bought a plant, then realized I didn't like cilantro. Now I do, and am looking for something that won't bolt in the Virginia summer the way regular coriander does. I figure if it grows in Vietnam it must be okay here (Thai Basil grows like a weed here). Does anyone have an idea where to find seeds/plants? I've checked Seeds of CHange and Seeds for Cooks.
I would highly recommend Richters Herbs. The company is located near Toronto, Ontario, Canada (where I am from) but they ship across the globe. I looked at their site and they have no less that 6 kinds of Coriander, including vietnamese. They have an amazing variety of seeds!!
Their site is http://www.richters.ca go to the "Main Catalog" and then look up coriander.
Along with Seeds of Change, one of my favorite seed sources is Seed Savers. But both seem to lean more toward European-American seed sources. Maybe with more heirloom plants being brought over here by Asian immigrants, they'll diversify!
Happily, I've been able to buy Kitazawa seeds in nurseries here in LA, I'm not sure if they have what you're looking for, but you should check out their website:
There are a few other sources listed on this website (in the frame to the left of the page):
