55 days. Our 2021 substitute for Pokey Joe Cilantro, Leisure is a standard, dependable cilantro. Leaves, stems, flowers, and seeds are edible. This variety was bred to resist flowering (aka "bolting") in hot weather, so it's less likely to become bitter as some varieties do. If left to bolt, the umbel flowers will attract hoards of beneficial insects and then the magic of edible (coriander) seeds will develop. A good variety for repeated harvests, especially when grown in spring and fall. Versatile herb and spice used in culinarily traditions worldwide.

Cilantro is an annual plant that produces tasty leaves and then will bolt to produce flowers and coriander seed. Cilantro can be transplanted but is best direct sown into garden soil when soil is >55° around 5/8. Days to germination: 5-10. For a constant supply of cilantro, sow new seeds every 2 weeks. Sow as late as 8/31 for fall harvests. Handles light frost.
