50 days for leaves. Calypso is destined to become the new workhorse of your herb garden. Stocky, very well-branched plants deliver almost unbelievable yields of fragrant, delectable leaves, simply packed with authentic Cilantro flavor. Let them set seed and you have Coriander too!
Just 12 to 18 inches high and wide, this powerhouse concentrates all its energy on producing masses of flavorful leaves. The more you cut, the quicker new ones arise, for a longer-than-ever season of delicious eating!
Technically Calypso is the replacement for the old favorite Jantar, but it goes far beyond Jantar in uniformity, yields, and resistance to bolting. You’re going to love it!
Cilantro is used in Mexican, Thai, Chinese, and Indian cooking. It is a staple of great Salsa, with a very spicy bite that complements the acidity of Tomatoes and limes nicely. Pick fresh leaves all summer long! And Coriander is a fragrant spice widely used in Middle Eastern and Indian cuisine. Fresh Cilantro and Coriander from your garden are infinitely more aromatic and flavorful than most store-bought versions, so consider adding it to your vegetable garden this season!
Give Calypso full sunshine and any moist, well-drained garden soil. Hold off on fertilizers that contain nitrogen, which could reduce the flavor of the leaves and seeds. This is a very quick-growing herb, setting leaves that can be harvested just 4 to 5 weeks after sowing the seed! Pkt is 100 seeds.
