Watercress - Nasturtium officinale

Tender Perennial Crisp and wonderful in salads 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.

Soil and Water: Watercress loves to grow in rich, soggy soil high in organic matter. It can also be grown in a stream or a bucket with standing water.

Planting and Growing: When growing it as an annual- sow seeds indoors before frost, harden off and transplant after frost. When growing it as a perennial- sow indoors, or direct seed after frost, keeping soil very moist.

Harvesting and Storage: Cut like any other green. Best eaten soon after harvest.
