Papalo

1 review

 Porophyllum ruderale

If you love cilantro, you have to try this unusual Mexican herb. Largely grown in Central and South America, it is also known as Papaloquelite. The flavor is similar to cilantro with a bit more punch coupled with a touch of mint and citrus. Very distinct. Thrives in hot conditions where cilantro would typically bolt or dwindle. Grows 3’ - 5’. Use raw and add to salsa, beans, and salads. Germination naturally runs around 40-50 percent.

75 seeds

    Cilantro substitute

    Easy to grow. I had it in a low planter placed under my cucumber trellis. It did not like the shade. It grew a couple of feet sideways to get out into the sun and then grew 3 feet of closely spaced medium sized leaves. Be careful to cut when harvesting as pulling can damage the plant.
