Caption: Coriander fruit. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a coriander (Coriandrum sativum) fruit pod cut in half. The whole coriander plant edible but the dried fruit is used as a culinary spice for curries, as a pickling spice and as an ingredient in some alcoholic beverages. The pod has a lemony citrus flavour when crushed, due to the presence of the terpenes linalool and pinene. It is also described as warm, nutty, spicy, and orange-flavoured. They are usually dried but can be eaten green. Coriander belongs to the apiaceae family of plants which includes carrots, celery, dill, cumin and many other important food crops. Magnification: x15.7 when printed 10 centimetres wide.
