.Coriander grows wild over a wide area of the Near East and southern Europe, prompting the comment, "It is hard to define exactly where this plant is wild and where it only recently established itself."^ Coriander is an annual herb indigenous to southern Europe, but now produced throughout Asia and parts of North America as well.

^ Coriander has been around for thousands of years, even as far back as 5000 BC. It is native to southern Europe and the Middle East and was used by the ancient Egyptians, Romans and Greeks.
