HERBS: Treat yourself to fresh herbs right from your garden! The difference when home grown is impressive!

Aromatic Mexican native. Large, bluish green leaves with a flavor reminiscent of cilantro, citrus and arugula. Used like cilantro in tacos, salsa and sauces. Also known as Papaloquelite. Porophyllum ruderale is an herbaceous annual plant whose leaves can be used for seasoning food. The plant is commonly grown in Mexico and South America for use in salsas. When fully grown, this plant grows to about 5 feet in height and 3 feet in diameter. The plant is easy to grow from seed in a well drained soil, which should be allowed to dry between watering. Having been used by many cultures, Porophyllum ruderale is known by many names, including Bolivian coriander, quillquiña (also spelled quirquiña or quilquiña), yerba porosa, killi, pápalo, tepegua, "mampuritu" and pápaloquelite. Despite the name "Bolivian coriander", this plant is not botanically related to Coriandrum sativum. This plant is known in Mexico as pápaloquelite, commonly accompanying the famous Mexican tacos. It improves the flavor of tacos and typical Mexican salsas and soups. In Puebla cuisine, pápalo is used as a condiment on traditional cemita sandwiches, a regional type of Mexican torta. Papalo was also used in the Azteca era.
