Upland Watercress

Upland Watercress 500 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.
