Garden Cress

Certified Organic

Lepidium sativum

Tasty addition to salads and sandwiches.

Garden cress is similar to watercress, but is more potently flavored. It's truly peppery; compared to arugula, it has more tang and less body. It really livens the palate, even when it's used sparingly on salads and sandwiches. Easy and fast-growing; it bolts quite quickly so, if you enjoy it, plan succession sowings.

This product was grown and processed on our own certified organic farm, Four Fold Farm, in the Hudson Valley of New York State.
This variety is suitable for growing as a microgreen. 🌱
