You are very lucky to get it cilantro cheap as chips.
But here it's quite expensive, that's why I freeze it in the summer. If I'm making a Thai salad it has to be fresh.

I tried growing coriander once. It bolted. I did get a batch of seeds. It came back the next year and bolted again. It didn't come back the third year.

I can also now grow up to six plants, legally, for personal consumption, in my back yard.

Same here Cheryl. I gave up trying and we use lots of cilantro. Our mile away Mexican market sells it for a quarter a bunch, so that more than solves the problem.
