Product Description

Cress ‘Emerald Beads’
Lepidium setatum

Cress is typically marketed as a salad green; however, if allowed to go to seed it makes a bulletproof, versatile filler. Upright, apple-green panicles are covered with tiny textural beads. Cress is durable and ages well, turning golden at the end of the season. This must-grow variety can be used from mid summer through autumn and can also be dried.
