Growing Calendar for Coriander - Calypso Seeds
The First Choice of Prize Winning Gardeners & Lovers of Real Food
Calypso is the first cut ‘n' come again coriander.
Grow it in beds and borders or even better, grow it in pots, near the kitchen, so that you can just cut whatever you need, whenever you need it, to add to your favourite dishes.
It is very slow to bolt with a low growing point, the stems grow from the base of the plants which enables you to get at least 4 cuts from each sowing.

We love this herb, this variety is amazing. We grew it on the kitchen windowsill as its a fresh herb we use alot in salads/cooking. The 'cut and come again' has proved over and over so useful and it grew quickly again - very tasty and we will be buying this again and again!
Late May I sowed half the pack outdoors in a meter long furrow and covered with water retaining compost in a sunny position. I now have a fantastic crop of superb tasting corriander. Very easy to grow just water heavily at sunset. During the 3 days that where hot and sunny I watered before sunrise too to keep the crop tip top. Once cut new growth is showing within 2-3 days and grows quite quickly. As yet non of the crop has bolted and I intend harvesting the first show before it does, that way I can have a great fresh crop throughout the rest of summer and autumn providing it doesnt want to flower by then. If like me you eat lots of corriander then this is the variety you want, fairly good leaf size with a superb aromatic flavour.
Until Calypso came along I always had problems with coriander bolting before I could use it but not now. I had a trough of 4 plants on the windowsill last year and picked the outer leaves like parsley, the 4 plants produced for about 10 weeks - superb variety!
