The label on this herb when I bought it said Cilantro. But I’m not so sure after seeing other pictures of cilantro. I thought perhaps the part of the cilantro plant that you eat would be like the flowers that’ll bloom later. But it’s growing new leaves now and they look the same as you see here. Can someone tell me if it is indeed cilantro or if not, what it is? PS, this plant is growing indoors if that matters.

    Mexican cilantro or Culantro: Eryngium foetidum, another variety of cilantro used in Mexican dishes The leaves of Mexican cilantro have spiny-toothed edges and look much hardier. The plant grows in dry grasslands and has green-white flowers. It is pungent in flavor, and is often used for curries, rice, and fish.
