Yeah I’m Scottish so always knew it as coriander. I married into a Hispanic family and although I was sure it was the same plant they’d argue blue in the face it’s notyeah it's the same plant, just different use of the name depending different part of the world it seem.
"Cilantro and coriander come from the same plant. Depending on your location, coriander may refer to just the dried seeds or to the whole plant. Cilantro typically refers to the leaves and stalk.
In North America, cilantro refers to the leaves and stalks of the plant. The word “cilantro” is the Spanish name for coriander leaves. Meanwhile, the dried seeds of the plant are called coriander.
Internationally, it’s a different story. Coriander is the name for the leaves and stalks of the plant, while the dried seeds are called coriander seeds.
Really appreciate the clarification, every days a school day. Love learning new things!
