Thread: Vietnamese Coriander
- 20-05-2009, 09:04 PM #1
Does anyone know anything about vietnamese coriander? It is a frost tender perennial - but does that mean it is ok for me to pop it back out in the garden now that there isn't much chance of frost or does it still need to be warmer?
It is quite tall and I got fed up of it blocking all the light through my kitchen window - so I have put it out in the shed, on a shelf in front of the window. Do you think it will be ok? Temps have been around 9 degrees in the shed overnight.....

I can sleep easy tonight now.
Hi sorry to beg, but I had loads of this last year, and even sent out cuttings to other grapes. Anyway, mine inside got bad spider mite, and the one that started to shoot in the greenhouse mysteriously died. I have been looking in all the garden centres around here for a replacement without any luck. I was wondering if anyone might spare some, as I found they rooted in water within 3-4 days for me last year. Please PM me if you can help, thanksI could not live without a garden, it is my place to unwind and recover, to marvel at the power of all growing things, even weeds!

Can you tell me how you eat it coz I have tried it and its as hot as H*LL.. But love the smell..
I use it in curries. In fact I had about 6 plants from cuttings last year, so I froze a lot in ice cubes for the winter, knowing I intended only to keep one plant going . I just chuck in an ice cube with everything else, gives a lovely taste, or so I think whihc is why I would really like a new one for this year. I didn't really find it hot thought, but not quite like ordinary coriander, whihc i love in curries as well.I could not live without a garden, it is my place to unwind and recover, to marvel at the power of all growing things, even weeds!

Hi Barley Sugar,
I have a small plant spare you can have it if you want - will PM you.
I find it's not so hot if you don't cook it. Don't ask why as I found this out by accident. I find it really nice in small quantities in salads, like basil but tastier.
Other than that it works a bit like a chilli and should be treated accordingly. I have not had the nerve to try carrot and viet corriander soup - might be good if a little warm.

I got a plant of this very cheaply from our local nursery. I had no idea you could eat it. I shall have to get another.Mad Old Bat With Attitude.
I tried jogging, but I couldn't keep the ice in my glass.
