Which kind of coriander is the one credited or certified with the most intense flavor?

Coriander (Cilantro)    None Given

I live in Finland where the coriander found (Coriandrum sativum) at the supermarkets has a very poor taste, not to say any at all. I will like to grow a variety of coriander with good aroma. Any suggestions where to get the seeds? Now Springtime is here and also the right time to plant my garden.

Huomenta! (That is pretty much all I recall from living in Finland). That is a good question. I assume you have searched on-line. Each region has seed catalogues and web pages. This is a difficult question to answer outside on Finland as results people get are different depending on the location. I would do Google searches and look at the paid content- they are likely seed sellers. You should also contact local garden supply stores who often carry seeds.

Thank you so much for your kind answer. Your Huomenta is just perfect ! This is a huge advance when you arrived to Finland and you face the difficulties of this unique language, But that is the starting point. I have not advanced very much from there unfortunately, almost everybody here speaks at least 3 languages making my life easier !!!. I have an issue with coriander because it is very fundamental part of Latin American cuisine. And I miss it a lot. Of course there is coriander here but the taste of this extremelly industrial herbe grown ussualy in green houses is far from that intense fragance and taste I used to enjoy in Latin America. Also I use it a lot in Oriental cuisine. Now I found a japanesse company, SAKATA, selling very provocative varieties of Coriander like the GLADIATOR brand, but it seems they only sell whosale for the agroindustry. So far I have not found anything. Keep searching though...Thanks again for your encouragement... Ferdinand
