The flowers are produced in small umbels and are white or very pale pink in colour with the petals pointing away from the centre of the umbel longer than those pointing towards it. The plant produces an oval shaped fruit which is yellow-brown in colour and contains two seeds. Coriander is an annual plant, surviving only one growing season and reaches up to 50 cm (19.7 in). Coriander may also be referred to as cilantro, chinese parsley or dhania and originates from the Near East.
