Wikipedia: Coriander
Coriander (/ˌkɒriˈændər, ˈkɒriændər/; Coriandrum sativum) is an annual herb in the family Apiaceae. It is also known as Chinese parsley, dhania or cilantro (/sɪˈlæntroʊ, -ˈlɑːn-/). All parts of the plant are edible, but the fresh leaves and the dried seeds (as a spice) are the parts most traditionally used in cooking.

I met a man who was handing out bunches of coriander on a street corner. I asked him why. He said he had made a lot of money in his life and now he just wanted to be known as a cilantropist.
