Coriander is a major seed spice crop used for flavouring and seasoning. It is a low volume, high value crop and therefore, apart from yield, highly valued for quality. Besides the commonly found plants with purple flower-purple tinch stem, white flower-green stem and white flower-purple stem plants are also found naturally. These plants are underexploited with respect to yield, yield contributing and quality traits. Our results based on a preliminary study of these genotypes seem to be promising for the development of coriander varieties with high yield, high oil content and good keeping quality. Advance trials over the years and locations for yield and quality are needed for further confirmation of these results.
