Description: The annual or biennial plant is a native of Morocco and grows to about 1 meter in height. It has sparse, fine, feathery leaves and pinkish/white flowers. The brownish, globose seeds have a disagreeable smell until they ripen, when they take on their spicy aroma. The bright green delicate leaves, umbels of lace-like white flowers are followed by a mass of green (turning brown) round seeds. These seeds are hard and egg-shaped, borne in pairs, which do not separate. Coriander is a delicate annual herb with several branches and lacy leaves with jagged edges. The plant grows to a height of 1 to 3 feet with small and pinkish- white flowers. The aromatic seeds are round yellowish brown in color when ripe.
Coriander can stimulate appetite, ease indigestion, and relieve neuralgia.
