Micro Cilantro has 4 bright green leaves that sprout from pale lime green stems. The first set of leaves to open, or the cotyledons, have an elongate blade-shape while the latter pair are slightly toothed and resemble a tiny version of mature cilantro. Plants range from 3 to 5 centimeters in height and are entirely edible, stem and all. Micro Cilantro has a sweet, bright citrusy aroma, most notably without the soapy scent some say the mature herb produces. Its clean, bold, classic cilantro flavor finishes with robust notes of pepper and fresh cut grass. Micro Cilantro is one of the richest herbal sources for vitamin K. Vitamin K has a potential role in bone mass building by promoting osteotrophic activity in the bones. Micro Cilantro has 3 times more beta-carotene than mature cilantro and is also high in lutein. These nutrients have been known to be beneficial for the skin and eyes. Reference Credit: Specialty Produce.com
