Cilantro, coriander and Chinese parsley are all common names for this herb. Regular seed is actually the whole seedpod that contains two or more seeds. For monogerm or split seed, the pods are split open to collect the single seeds. Many growers prefer split seed for precision planting and a higher seed count per pound. Microgreen growers indicate that split seed germinates faster and more consistently. This is the same Leisure variety we offer in whole seed.
