This might be best moved to "Vietnamese coriander". The scent and flavor are much more like coriander leaf than mint and the name seems to be in at least as common usage as "Vietnamese mint". WormRunner | Talk 15:39, 22 Jun 2004 (UTC)

I'm fine with the change, but "coriander" is not a proper name and it should not be capitalized. Jpatokal 23:57, 29 Jun 2004 (UTC)
Done, but the talk page's "C" is stil capitalized. Lordofallkobuns 08:02, 20 October 2006 (UTC)[reply]

"cannot live above the 32º parallel"[edit]

Hate to be pedantic (isn't this a great place for that), but as I'm currently growing this on my balcony in Finland it may be an idea to change this... -- 04:55, 19 July 2007 (UTC)[reply]

Like many other articles about Vietnamese cuisine, also if this one is of Vietnamese origin, then this page should redirect to rau răm. Kinh Duong Vuong (talk) 05:59, 29 July 2008 (UTC)[reply]

We try to use English names where they exist. Badagnani (talk) 06:14, 29 July 2008 (UTC)[reply]


The article refers to aldehydes, but gives one compound ending in 'ol' instead of 'al', probably a simple typo.

The references to polygonatum odoratum are irrelavent as the plant is persicaria or polygonum odoratum. Polygonatum is a soloman's seal (talk) 22:00, 2 July 2015 (UTC) tony[reply]

Alcohols and aldehydes[edit]

Section headed "Components" says "Its oil contains aldehydes such as decanal (28%) and dodecanol (44%), as well as the alcohol decanol (11%)."

Assuming there is substance to this information, was "dodecanol" intended to read "dodecanal", or should "alcohol" read "alcohols" and " and dodecanol (44%)" be moved to after "decanol (11%)"?

Apart from that, as an afterthought I'm wondering about the meaning of "Its oil". Is it oil from the leaves, the seeds, the whole plant, or what?

The reference is a broken link. I don't delete it in case anyone can find a correct link, but the page seems to have been deleted from the original site. --Alkhowarizmi (talk) 12:44, 25 July 2017 (UTC)[reply]
