Coriander (Corundum Sativa) is a tropical crop and is cultivated as a Rabi season crop in an area free from severe frost during February when the crop flowers and sets its seeds. The pleasing flavor of the coriander fruit is not thoroughly developed until it is completely dry. Coriander seeds are available in whole or ground or as extracts, and are used as a flavoring agent in the food industry or as spice for breads, cheeses, curry, fish, meats, sauces, soups, pastries, and confectioneries. As a medicinal plant, coriander has been used as an antispasmodic, carminative, stimulant, and stomachic. Coriander has also exhibited hypoglycemic activity.
