One photogrpah from a Local Herbal garden .... where the label says its the MADRASI CORIANDER...indicating its primary use and cultivation in the southern Indian sates... second shows the plant , it is ready to harvest as culinary herb...
In the green grocery stores in the southern states in USA its often labelled as CULANTRO (as opposed to CILANTRO as in Dhania patta). It has the same smell.Used in place of Dhania patta in India,
the Caribbean and Thailand …
Medicinally it is anti- inflammatory and analgesic,
uses based on ethnomedicine reports from south American natives, are to kill
strongyloides and trypanosomes….
And even as anticonvulsant.
Binomial name * Eryngium
The leaves are about an inch wide at the widest, and three to five inches long.... at about 6 - 8 weeks after seed sowing...
I did not get to go back and see how the central stalk and flowers developed... may be next year..
