Fresh Cilantro/Coriander seed

Chris VR | Aug 26, 2003 03:39 PM

I planted some cilantro and neglected it for a while. Next time I saw it, it had flowered and gone to seed. Now I have these little green berries on the plant. I know that coriander is dried cilantro seed. So I have 2 questions:

1) Can I use the green berries? They smell awfully good, like a bright, pungent version of dried coriander.

2) If I wanted to use the seeds as coriander, is there a time when I should harvest and dry the seeds? Or will it dry on the plant and then I should harvest?

Thanks!
