Mexican Coriander

amy g. | Mar 8, 2002 09:54 AM

I was at the grocery store yesterday when I saw an herb in a pot called cilantro. However this had a thistle like appearance. I rubbed it between my fingers and it gave no scent. So I broke off a little piece and the taste is like a strong cilantro.
The tag on the plant called it "mexican coriander" and said that it is "good in areas too hot for true coriander."
Has any one heard of this plant?
