Vietnamese Coriander Plant

While it shares a similar flavor profile with the leaves of what we know as the coriander plant (cilantro), Vietnamese coriander is unique.

It’s also known as “Vietnamese Mint” which should give you an idea of just how different this plant is from its Mexican namesake. Known as rau răm in Vietnam, Persicaria odorata leaves taste like a citrusy, peppery, more intense version of cilantro.

Vietnamese coriander looks nothing like cilantro. In fact, it looks more similar to basil or mint. It belongs to the knotweed family of plants, which also includes buckwheat and rhubarb. The leaves are long and slim with dark green tops and burgundy undersides. They’re often spotted with brownish-red patches. The stem is jointed where each leaf joins it, which is one of the characteristics shared by many of the knotweed family.

You will receive one well rooted plant. Your plant will be shipped with the roots wrapped in damp paper towels and with plastic and ready to plant upon arrival. The plant will be between 2 to 3 inches in height and has been growing in a 3.5 inch square pot.
