Apiaceae (earlier and a.k.a. Umbelliferae) (carrot family) » Coriandrum sativum var. vulgare

kor-ee-AN-drum — from the Greek koris, a bug or gnat; referring to its aroma
sa-TEE-vum — cultivated
vul-GAIR-ee — common
Distribution: naturalized worldwide, probable origin eastern Mediterranean region
Edible use:
the young shoot and leaves (before flowering) normally used as SPICE in most of the oriental recipes for lending its unique taste and smell, at least in one instance known to me as a VEGETABLE … popular among Maharashtrians as kothimbir vadi. Adding dried fruits (spice – referred to as seeds in common parlance) lend the same taste and smell plus lemony flavour the roots have a deeper, more intense flavour than the leaves and stem
tidbits:
If the plant has flowered the taste becomes increasingly bitter and should not be used in recipes calling for coriander
Quoted from Seasoned Advice<http://cooking.stackexchange.com/questions/2610/what-is-coriander-roo…>
… also known as Chinese parsley or, particularly in the Americas, cilantro … should not be confused with Culantro (Eryngium foetidum L.) which is a close relative to coriander
Quoted from Wikipedia <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coriander>
other variety:
var. microcarpum, grown in Russia and Central Europe has smaller fruits (less than 3 mm) and contains more essential oil than the oriental variety var. vulgare (greater than 3 mm), which is cultivated for fruits and leaves.
Quoted from Uni-Graz <http://www.uni-graz.at/%7Ekatzer/engl/Cori_sat.html>
