Curled cress has been cultivated for hundreds of years. Peppery and pungent, cress has the same tangy flavor that watercress does, being of the same botanical family.
Ture watercress has a peppery-tasting flavor. A semiaquatic, creeping perennial whose leaves are popular in salads, sandwiches and as a garnish.
Upland cress is a slow starting green but once it's established it will take off! Slow to bolt and long growing season.
