Greens - Dutch Broadleaf Cress
Lepidium sativum. 20 days. Garden cress is an easy-to-grow cool-season green and this variety is our favorite of several we’ve tried. Very large, broad leaves for a garden cress, with nice wavy edges. Fairly slow to bolt & good peppery flavor with not too much spice. Gives a fantastic boost to salads and sandwiches. Reintroduced in 2009 by Adaptive Seeds, this old variety from the Netherlands had been commercially unavailable for a decade. Grown organically, but harvested a month before official certification came through.
