How to Grow & When to Plant Rau Ram in Your Herb Garden!

Posted 1 CommentPosted in Growing Food

Cilantro is one of our favorite herbs to use in cooking, but our growing season here in Oklahoma makes it difficult to grow because of how hot it gets. Rau ram (Vietnamese Cilantro/Coriander) is a great alternative to cilantro that flourishes in heat and can handle as much sun as you give it. It has a bit more of a kick than traditional cilantro, but we are usually using it in Mexican dishes so we enjoy this extra kick! It is not recommended to start rau ram by seed, but can usually be planted by cuttings from an existing plant or by transplant.
