Belle Isle Upland Cress Seeds (Organic)

Belle Isle Upland Cress Seeds (Organic)

Nutritious Zingy Herb

Belle Isle Upland Cress, also known as American Cress or Early Yellow Rocket, originates from North America, particularly in the regions near the Great Lakes. This robust perennial green is a member of the Brassicaceae family, which includes watercress and other peppery greens. It boasts an appealing aesthetic with lush, serrated leaves and small, delicate white flowers that often bloom in clusters during the growing season.

The taste of Belle Isle Upland Cress is distinctive, offering a pungent, peppery flavor similar to watercress but with a slight mustardy bite. Its tender leaves provide a zesty addition to salads, sandwiches, and various culinary dishes.

When planting from seed, this cress prefers cool and moist conditions. It grows well in fertile, well-drained soil that retains moisture. Sow the seeds thinly and cover them with a light layer of soil, keeping the bed consistently moist until germination occurs. This plant flourishes in partial shade to full sun and requires regular watering to maintain the soil's moisture levels.

A hardy and adaptable green, Belle Isle Upland Cress is suitable for both indoor and outdoor cultivation. With its quick growth and harvest cycle, it's an excellent choice for year-round planting in temperate climates. Regular harvesting encourages fresh growth, and the leaves maintain their flavor even when exposed to cooler temperatures.

Rich in vitamins A and C, calcium, and iron, Belle Isle Upland Cress not only adds a peppery kick to dishes but also contributes to a healthy diet. Its resilience, robust flavor, and easy cultivation make it a favored addition to gourmet meals and a versatile option for home gardens.
