I have read that this Confetti Coriander will last longer that the ordinary coriander before running to seed. Has anybody in the temperate area experienced this. Thank you. Pat

Cilantro is, strictly speaking, the name for the leaves and Coriander is the name for the seeds. Just a little bit of trivia for you.

You are right. Confetti Coriander can be harvested earlier and is slower to run to seed.
