Micro Cilantro is very small in size, averaging 5-7 centimeters in length, and has 2-4 flat and broad leaves that connect to a slender, lime green stem. The first set of bright green leaves to open, or the cotyledons, have an elongated blade-shape while the following pair, or the true leaves, have a slightly toothed margin and resemble a tiny version of mature cilantro leaves. Micro Cilantro is crisp and has a sweet, bright citrusy aroma with a clean, bold, classic cilantro flavor finishing with robust notes of pepper and fresh cut grass. It is also most notably without the soapy scent that some say mature cilantro possesses.
Micro Cilantro is available year-round.
Micro Cilantro is a young, tiny, edible version of the well-known herb and is harvested approximately 14-21 days after sowing. Micro Cilantro is one of the most popular microgreens currently on the market today. Favored for its peppery, pungent flavor, Micro Cilantro has become widespread as a garnish for its ease of use and ability to add flavor, texture, and visual appeal to any dish.
Micro Cilantro contains vitamins A, B, C, E, and K, beta-carotene, calcium, iron, potassium, zinc, and phosphorus.
Micro Cilantro leaves are best suited for raw preparations, specifically as a garnish, as they will wilt if exposed to prolonged heat. They feature a bright, sweet, and spicy flavor without the soapy, bitter characteristic that mature cilantro can develop. Micro Cilantro leaves are most commonly used in Mexican, Indian, Thai, and Chinese cuisines. They can be sprinkled on top of egg rolls and spring rolls, used to add a bright flavor to lobster and crab, mixed into polenta, or even chopped into salsa. Micro Cilantro pairs well with avocado, carrots, zucchini, tomato, coconut milk, citrus, ginger, mint, lemongrass, chile peppers, yogurt, chicken, lamb, and white fish. They will keep 5-7 days when stored unwashed, in a sealed container in the refrigerator and should be added only at the very final stage of finishing a dish.
Cilantro is native to Southern Europe where it has been in use since 5000 BCE in both medicinal and culinary purposes. Micro Cilantro was one of the first microgreens used by chefs in upscale restaurants and continues to be one of the most popular microgreens since the growth of the microgreen trend. The flavor of Micro Cilantro is softer than the mature herb and offers delicate citrus notes to help brighten up dishes. Its versatility in different cuisines has also made it well-known across the globe.
Cilantro is native to Southern Europe and was thought to have arrived in North America in the late 17th century. Micro Cilantro, however, did not start appearing on menus until the 1980s in the United States. Microgreens became even more popular in the 1990s, with the first documented use of the word microgreen in 1998 in California. Today Micro Cilantro can be found at specialty grocers and select distributors in North America, South America, Europe, Asia, and Australia.
