Have people actually described it as having a soapy taste? I've never heard that before. I think it taste great and it's easy to grow. Just chop up some tomato, Seranos, Onion, and Cilantro and put it on your tacos with some lime hmmmm. I'm hungry now.

Yeah, it's a genetic thing. So for some people it tastes like soap.

My mom thinks it tastes like soap, but me and my sibling do not.

It is a delectable thing that brings joy and light into the world.

Ew. No thanks. I don't actually quite taste the soap that my mom does, but I find it still an unpleasant flowery perfume flavor.

So it's in-between for me. I'm not left trying to rinse the flavor out of my mouth, but I still don't care for it. I don't enjoy the flavor of what, in theory, rose perfume might taste like, sans other perfume chemicals.

As one who has eaten rose petals/hips, they actually taste a little bland but also faintly sweet. I like cilantro but find it a bit "hot".

I get something more bitter, personally, but I'm not an enormous fan.

Hence why I said it tastes hot. Its part of what makes pico spicy.

I'm sure it depends on the recipe and also the personal taste of the person because I don't think pico is spicy at all and I often mix a more spicy salsa with it. Also didn't read previous posts before posting.

Interesting because I never knew that cilantro was supposedly spicy. Or bitter. So maybe those are other genetic variants?

I'm sure actual roses probably taste far better, but rose perfume would be gross...much like cilantro. lol

"Pretty sure," aka must be immune to it then. If it's in something I will notice that flavor immediately. More of a "has to be" situation. lol

The onion is what I notice most often and it seems to overtake the cilantro in my circumstance. Taste is a strange and varied thing forsure.

It's know as coriander here - I think it's OK. My dad and one of my sisters have the soap problem. Dad really hates it.

Im not 100% sure but I THINK coriander is a different plant. It's always listed seperately in my herbals.

Coriander is the seed that a cilantro plant makes.

Any and all my southwest food must include cilantro. It is amazing.

Cilantro tasting like soap?

Huh?

I've never heard it described like that before. Weird.

Anywho, I like cilantro on my tacos. It's also alright when they throw some in some stew. But apart from that, I never really eat the stuff.

Cilantro is just the Spanish word for coriander, so I don't think most of euorope uses the word cilantro to refer to coriander leaves
