Coriander is an annual plant whose height reaches one meter.

Coriander stems are relatively thin, tender, and pale green, and their cross section is often square. Longitudinal grooves can be seen on the surface of these stems.

Coriander leaves are small and thin and grow crosswise. Each leaf has two deep cuts that divide these leaves into three parts with a jagged edge. Coriander leaves look like parsley, but are lighter and thinner. After the stems are fully grown, in the upper part of the plant new leaves will grow which are different from the previous leaves. These leaves are very small and branched and divided into narrow and pointed parts.

Coriander flowers are very small and pinkish white and grow in the form of umbrellas at the end of flowering stems. Each flower has several very small and completely separate petals. Only the outer petals of the side flowers of this plant grow in an almond shape and the rest of the petals remain closed.

Coriander seeds are spherical and relatively large, and there are prominent and parallel lines in the form of concentric radii on each of them. Coriander seeds grow at the end of the flowers. These seeds are green and have bad odor, but after fully ripening, they turn pale brown and fragrant.
