It seems like cilantro is one of those herbs that people love or hate, and very few people feel ambivalent about it. I love its fresh, green taste, and use it liberally in Indian, Mexican, Middle Eastern and Asian dishes. My dad, however, finds that cilantro tastes strongly of soap, and can detect even a shred of it if it is in a dish.
Plant in a sunny spot after danger of frost. Cilantro likes to bolt, but you can slow the process down by planting it in partial shade and cutting it frequently. Once bolted, cilantro forms a delicate white flower that attracts beneficial insects, so I let it stand in my garden. At the end of the season, you can harvest the dried seeds to use as a spice (coriander).
