Flowers Cress Persian Cress

Persian Cress

Organic Cress Seed

Product ID: 3399G

New! Productive, easy-to-grow cut flower filler.

Airy, yet sturdy branches filled with tiny, coin-like, silvery-green seed pods. Grew faster and taller in our trials than Wrinkled Crinkled Cress, which is also used as a cut flower filler. We recommend multiple plantings about two weeks apart for continuous harvest. Persian Cress leaves are edible and have a mild, peppery flavor. Also makes a nice salad green. Ht. 32-40" Avg. 12,300 seeds/oz. Packet: 200 seeds.
