American Upland Cress -Seeds

American Upland Cress -Seeds Image

This 'garden' version is very similar to Watercress but not as fussy about where it grows.
It develops a 'rosette' growth habit, similar to Salad Burnett but with larger rounded leaves. The young leaves make a great substitute for Watercress in sandwiches, salads, soups or lightly steamed for a few minutes and used as a vegetable.
It is a very long lasting herb, not necessarily a perennial but a long term annual or biannual.
The seeds germinate quickly (usually under a week) and almost always every seed.
