When it flowers (I guess that's bolting?) it can make a beautiful spray of tiny white flowers that I'm told fancy restaurants will pay for to use as a garnish. Some of those flowers will turn to seed. These "seeds" at first are green, soft, and have a delicious cilantro punch. Amazing in salads, salsas, dips, omelettes etc. We've been eating them frequently for a couple of weeks now, since it got hot in N. Tx. If they are happy with their spot (at my house, the love a spot that is shaded except for about 3 hours a day) the will reseed themselves from those seeds and next year, you'll have cilantro start growing anywhere from fall, to winter and up until the summer heat gets it. Love it!
