Product Description

Annual. Frost tender. Heirloom from Central America. Popular in Hispanic communities where it is used like cilantro. The flavor is similar to cilantro, but more pungent and with hints of mint and citrus — a little papalo goes a long way. Much easier to grow than cilantro as you can make multiple cuttings from the same plant. Just plant once in the spring and harvest all season long. Easy to grow and thrives in hot weather. We use papalo in place of cilantro in salsas, salads, etc., really everything you would use cilantro in. Like cilantro, add it at the last minute and do not cook it. Use about 1/3 as much papalo as you would cilantro. The younger leaves are the mildest.

We have a 6 plant minimum for shipping purposes. You can mix and match varieties to meet the minimum.

We ship every Monday and Tuesday, from late March through late May, to the 48 contiguous states. We schedule your shipment to arrive just after the last frost date for your area. We will send an email from our farm (lazyoxfarmyahoo.com) within 24 hours of receiving your order informing you of your shipping date. You are welcome to change the shipping date. Just let us know when you want them.

Our plants are sustainably raised in our own potting mix. We use only organic fertilizers and sprays if needed. We have been growing and selling plants since 1997.

Our plants are shipped in individual 3" deep pots. They are ready to be planted out in your garden.

We package our plants with extreme care so they arrive undamaged at your doorstep. Each plant is tucked into its own padded sleeve. The soil in each pot is covered so it will not spill out. A plant tag identifying the variety is included with each plant.

We will start accepting orders for 2020 in early January. We will start shipping in late March, weather permitting.
