I'm in Tampa, FL and I've been growing basil, Italian flat and curly parsley, chives, rosemary and dill for quite a while. I bought cilantro plants twice -- the first time a cilantro-loving armadillo ate the whole darn plant and didn't bother any of the others. The second time it just withered and died. I'm having trouble with basil plants now, too.

I do love being able to go out the door and pick fresh herbs from the garden.

I agree - dried herbs just don't compare to fresh.

I love chopping fresh cilandro or coriander leaves and put in a a mixer with yoghurt to make a smooth cream,I add some curry powder and dry bay leaves,plus one spoon of olive oil just to assemble all the ingredients,then I pour the cream on stuffed breast chiken,almost in summer time when the weather is too warm and I am not keen on cooking for a long time,nevertheless I'd like to eat it even now in winter time...it's snowing a lot !!!!

I like Cilantro in moderation. Love it in fresh salsa and Latin Sofrito and other Latin dishes. Italian Parsley is my favorite green herb.

Cilantro was my favorite herb for a while, and I still love it, but I prefer the seeds to the plant.

I've definitely heard the "soap" description but I don't find that it tastes that way at all. I love cilantro.
