Curly Cress Micro-Greens

About

AKA Pepper Grass, this spicy mucilaginous Brassica (the same family as Broccoli, Cabbage, Mustard, Radish...) is, in flavor, something like Watercress and is a very fast grower which, because it is mucilaginous, sholuld Not be Soaked when grown straight. Just sprinkle some seeds on moist soil or a thoroughly moistened Hemp Bag or on Baby Blanket nestled in our Compostable Tray, or any other planting medium, and watch your crop grow - in just 5-7 days - into one of the most intensely flavorful greens you've ever experienced!

A major ingredient in our leafy blends; French Garden, Italian Blend and Nick's Hot Sprout Salad, Cress was not available as an organic crop back in 1994. Working for years with our dear farmer friends Mark + Ila we have established it as a standard certified organic crop.

Cress along with Arugula (which has exactly the same organic history), Onion and Garlic Chive are likely the most essential flavor additions to any sprout kitchen!

FYI - when mucilaginous seeds are mixed with non-mucilaginous seeds in the proper proportions (our secret) they can be sprouted using traditional sprouting methods (like in French Garden, Italian Blend and Nick's Hot Sprout Salad)

Note: US and Canadian researchers have found that many brassicas contain antioxidants - including Cress.

Notes
This Cress is the most vigorous we have ever seen. It costs more, but it grows fast and strong! DAs with all mucilaginous seeds - try not plant too densely. They grow better if they aren’t piled atop each other. Seed Shelf Life: 5 years. Store in cool, dark, dry spot. Store in freezer to extend shelf life.
