 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.

Good germination, acquired taste

Shopping experience was great. Had better germination than anticipated. Unfortunately the taste of this herb…….extremely bitter and stayed in my mouth for literally 12 hours despite eating other things. A learning experience for sure! I can’t say i’ve had anything like it.
