Short, bushy, sweet.

My favorite variety of all the cilantro I grow. Not many places to get the seed, though. The flavor is not overpowering and the leaves are so crisp and abundant, yet the brightest green of all and takes a very long time to bolt as long as it is kept clipped. I think it is the shortest variety, yet has a nice spreading habit. It usually volunteers from dropped seed each season, so I don't often buy seed. There is such a demand in my area for fresh cilantro with great taste that now I have to purchase more seed. Other varieties put out enough seed that I could use, but I think Calypso tastes the best and puts out quality leaves the longest.

I'm fairly new to growing cilantro and planted this variety 2 years ago in a container for my salsa garden. It produced masses of leaves and didn't start bolting until nearly September (I direct sowed the last week in May). I tried a different variety last year and was extremely disappointed at how much different the yield was. Back to Calypso for me this year!
