Confetti cilantro is a new variety, and the celebration is on! The lofty, feathery leaves bring an unusual visual appeal to the cilantro plant, plus a pleasant taste and texture. The unique taste and look of this variety is strongest when the plant is young, so it’s best harvested as a baby green. Confetti cilantro’s texture also means less chopping and it also makes an eye-catching garnish with Asian and Latin American dishes.
