Crisp Leaves with a Tangy Flavor

Watercress - Nasturtium officinale

Tender Perennial Crisp and wonderful in salad and sandwiches, this member of the brassica family has been eaten and cultivated for over three millennia. Like its mustard cousins it has crisp leaves with a tangy flavor. Grows in USDA zones 1-5 as an annual and in USDA zones 6-9 as a perennial.

Did You Know? King Xerxes of Persia ordered his troops to eat watercress to keep them healthy during long marches.
