Yes, I used to be one of those people that thought the taste of cilantro was about as appealing as a mouthful of dish soap. Thankfully my taste buds realized the error of their ways, and I love it now, but it isn't the easiest herb to find. I've found one international store that carries fresh cilantro and it is in downtown Nagoya (20 minute subway ride away) - not the most convenient option. As you can see, the cilantro is packaged with its roots intact, so twice now I've tried planting my purchase to see if I could just grow my own. Well twice now my cilantro has been destroyed by heavy rainstorms. I'm off to go plant this batch in a more protected spot - third time is a charm, right?
