Coriander is native to regions spanning from southern Europe and northern Africa to southwestern Asia. It is a soft plant growing to 50 cm (20 in) tall. The leaves are variable in shape, broadly lobed at the base of the plant, and slender and feathery higher on the flowering stems. The seeds are generally used as a spice or an added ingredient in other foods or recipes.
In India, coriander is cultivated in particularly all the states and constitutes an important subsidiary crop in the black cotton soils of Deccan and South India (Andra Pradesh, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu) and the rich silt loam of North India. In Andra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu, over 100000 acres are under coriander cultivation. Similarly, it is grown on a fairly large scale in Punjab and neighboring states.
