Our Coriander is a must-have in any kitchen. Farmed in the Herat region of Afghanistan, where the terroir yields a complex but delicately sweet flavor with hints of pepper and mint and the classic touch of citrus.
Our Fennel, with its slightly sweet flavor profile accented with warm notes of licorice, brings out hidden flavors in a wide variety of dishes - grown wild in the rugged outskirts of the Herat region.
