How to Harvest Cilantro

Grow cilantro from seed for the best and longest harvests. If harvested properly, the leaves will continue to grow back! Check out our tips below for harvesting your homegrown cilantro:

How to Harvest Cilantro:

  1. After about 4 weeks of growth, when the plants are at least 6" tall, identify the largest, outer leaves. 
  2. Take a pair of scissors, and snip the stems of these leaves, about an inch from the surface of the soil. 
  3. Harvest about a quarter to a third of the leaves, to allow new growth to develop for continuous production! 
  4. Here's a recipe to make your own Fresh Cilantro Crema

Liz,
We do not recommend removing the fabric at any point during the growing process as it has several functions that are beneficial to the garden. It helps to block any weeds from growing so they are not competing with the seedlings you’ve planted and it helps to space your seedlings appropriately. It also keeps moisture from evaporating from the soil on hot days, and lastly, it can help to deter critters from disturbing your garden and making a snack of your sprouts. Let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.

The herbs are about 2". Can I remove the plastic sheet?
