Cilantro and coriander aren't the same. Coriander is the seed (fruit) and cilantro is the leaves of the same plant.

The leaves have a very different taste from the seeds, with citrus-like overtones. Some people perceive an unpleasant "soapy" taste or a rank smell and avoid eating the leaves.

I'm some people. I grew some in the garden and I could not pick it. Just picking it put a funky taste in my mouth that gasoline wouldn't wash out. Everyone else in the family doesn't have a problem with it. Guess that makes me special. :lol2:
