This page gives details on how to buy watercress seeds from David's Garden Seeds®.

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 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.

Curled Watercress

Tangy and zesty, curled cress is a nutritious and tasty accompaniment for use in all sorts of foods from salads to sandwiches to soups. Curled Cress is perhaps the best known and most commonly used of the 12 or so varieties of cress. Plant Curled Cress seeds indoors or out and enjoy a bountiful harvest.  Harvest in about 14 days.

Upland Cress

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.
