It is native to Mexico and South America, but is cultivated worldwide. In the United States, where it is not well-known, the name culantro sometimes causes confusion with Coriandrum sativum, the leaves of which are known as cilantro, and which culantro is even said to taste like.[1] The two plants are in the same family, Apiaceae.

E. foetidum is widely used in seasoning and marinating in the Caribbean. It is also used extensively in Thailand, India, Vietnam, and other parts of Asia as a culinary herb. This variety of coriander dries well, retaining good color and flavor, making it valuable in the dried herb industry. It is sometimes used as a substitute for cilantro, but has a much stronger taste. Like cilantro, many people find the leaves distasteful, due to a genetic trait. As the species name means "fetid" in Latin, it is possible that Linnaeus also had noted this trait.[citation needed] Image File history File links Metadata Size of this preview: 800 × 600 pixelsFull resolution (2048 × 1536 pixel, file size: 772 KB, MIME type: image/jpeg) Redwan Ahmed Safi, 2007 File history Legend: (cur) = this is the current file, (del) = delete this old version, (rev) = revert to this old version. ...
