Cress is a group of peppery greens more commonly grown and used in Europe in salad mixes, sandwiches, soups, and garnishes. There are three main types of edible cress, each unique in shape, texture, and growing requirements. Watercress is by nature a semi-aquatic plant long cultivated in milder regions of the world as a perennial, and increasingly indoors as well, most often hydroponically. Garden cress, offered in both organic and conventional forms, is the fast-growing form most typically produced in controlled-environment agriculture. Upland (or land) cress, has an extended harvest window under average field conditions, and is slower growing and sharper in flavor than other cresses, as it has a lower water content.

Tangy and zesty, curled cress is a nutritious and tasty accompaniment for use in all sorts of foods from salads to sandwiches to soups.

Upland Watercress 500 Non-GMO, Open Pollinated Seeds
Upland Watercress is the best cress for the outdoor garden with six to eight inch rosettes of dark green, glossy, rounded leaves. It is similar to watercress but much easier to grow. The plants are very slow to bolt and long-standing. Sometimes called "Creasy Greens" in the South, it is the tastiest of winter pot herbs, planted in the fall for winter and spring greens. Put a mess of greens in a pot with a little water and cook over slow heat, along with beans or meat, and then you eat it all at once, with cornbread. Harvest in about 70 days.
