Coriander and its Botany

Coriander (Coriandrum sativum) is an annual plant of the Apiaceae family, native to southern Europe and North Africa but cultivated worldwide. Measuring about 50 centimeters in height, it is appreciated for its leaves and seeds. The finely cut leaves have a fresh and lemony aroma, while the small white or pink flowers cluster in umbels. The seeds, used as a spice, have a sweet, lemony, and spicy taste.

One of the Oldest Spices!

Coriander originates from the East of the Mediterranean and was introduced to North Africa, Central Europe, Asia, and South America. It is one of the oldest spices, mentioned in ancient Sanskrit texts, the Old Testament, and the Ebers Papyrus (1550 BC). It has been known in China for over 2000 years. The Hebrews flavored their bread cakes with crushed coriander seeds. The Romans and Greeks used it to flavor their wines. Its usage dates back to ancient times. It was introduced to Central Europe and England during the Roman presence.
