University Farm’s Sarah Warner offers tips for harvesting cilantro

How to harvest cilantro for fresh herbs all season

Martha StewartSarah Warner, greenhouse manager at the Case Western Reserve University Farm, said it’s best to check the seed packet that your cilantro seeds came in if you’re unsure of when your first harvest should be. “Typically, a seed packet will state the ‘days to maturity’ for the plant, and this is when you would look out for the first harvest. For cilantro, this is usually around five weeks after planting,” she said.
