(Porophyllum ruderale) Mexican herb with decorative round 2 in. leaves (wider than the Bolivian type). The unique, complex taste is most often compared to cilantro, but also sometimes to arugula, lemon, and even rue. Generally used raw; great in tacos, salsa, and many other Mexican dishes. Like cilantro, it is loved by many and hated by a few, although many prefer one to the other. Once established, papalo grows quickly and easily. One planting can provide fresh greens for months. May self-sow in warm areas. Pkt (0.20 g, avg 100 seeds)
