Just so, how do you harvest cilantro so it keeps growing?
Harvest/Storage Harvest while it is low. When the cilantro grows its stalk, cut off the plant after the seeds drop and let it self-seed. The large leaves can be cut individually from the plants. For the smaller leaves, cut them off 1-½ to 2 inches above the crown.
Likewise, does cilantro grow back after cutting? when cutting, leave about an inch of stubble, which will contain the crown that produces new growth. Some tips: Water deeply after you harvest. Cilantro has long tap roots that will help the plants regrow, but only if you give them water – especially during the summer heat.
Besides, how many times can you harvest cilantro?
You should be harvesting cilantro about once a week. If the plant is growing well, you can harvest more often. Either way, you'll need to harvest the cilantro at least once a week to help stave off bolting.
Should I let my cilantro flower?
Cutting the cilantro flowers off won't bring the flavor back to the leaves. Instead, go ahead and let the cilantro flowers go to seed. The seeds of the cilantro plant are the spice coriander and can be used in Asian, Indian, Mexican and many other ethnic recipes.
