Annual. Frost tender. Heirloom from Central America. Popular in Hispanic communities where it is used like cilantro. The flavor is similar to cilantro, but more pungent and with hints of mint and citrus — a little papalo goes a long way. Much easier to grow than cilantro as you can make multiple cuttings from the same plant. Just plant once in the spring and harvest all season long. Easy to grow and thrives in hot weather. We use papalo in place of cilantro in salsas, salads, etc., really everything you would use cilantro in. Like cilantro, add it at the last minute and do not cook it. Use about 1/3 as much papalo as you would cilantro. The younger leaves are the mildest.

Within 24 hours of receiving your order, we will e-mail you with a shipping date that we choose based on your last frost date. You are welcome to change the date to any other shipping week. Just respond to the e-mail and tell us when you want your plants. Our first shipping date is late March, weather permitting. We will not have plants available before then.

Our plants are sustainably raised in our own potting mix. We use only organic fertilizers and sprays if needed. We have been growing and selling plants since 1997.

Our plants are shipped in individual 3″ deep pots, and are ready to be planted out in your garden.

We package our plants with extreme care so they arrive undamaged at your doorstep. Each plant is tucked into its own padded sleeve. The soil in each pot is covered so it will not spill out. A plant tag identifying the variety is included with each plant.

We ship every Monday and Tuesday, from late March through May, according to your location or your request. We currently ship to every state except Hawaii and Alaska.
