<!-- wp:paragraph --> <p>Cilantro, the plant we in Hawaii once knew as Chinese parsley, is a gardener's frustration. </p> <!-- /wp:paragraph --> <!-- wp:paragraph --> <p>It's slow to sprout, and once it gets above ground, a feast for slugs and snails. Then, if we're lucky enough to get a few leaves of it, it goes to seed in the hot Hawaii sun.</p> <!-- /wp:paragraph --> <!-- wp:paragraph --> <p>We hear that there are plants that are like cilantro, but are there really?</p> <!-- /wp:paragraph -->
