Manufacturer Description

Grow this ancient, leafy plant known as Watercress, from freshly harvested Nasturtium officinale herb seeds. Watercress is an aquatic, or semi-aquatic plant that establishes itself in shallow bodies of water, such as ponds, streams and on the edge of rivers. They are known to grow to a mature height of roughly 18 to 24 inches tall, producing delicious green leaves. The leaves are rounded and the stems are hollow. Both are edible when harvested, and can be added to salads as a Spinach alternative. You might consider harvesting the leaves prior to flowering as they hold the best flavor when young. Watercress is categorized as an annual herb / vegetable. Annuals will establish themselves in a single growing season, producing stems, leaves and flowers prior to wilting away during the first killing frost. The plants can produce seeds within the final weeks of Fall, allowing you to store them away for the following season. Watercress carries the Latin name Nasturtium, which should not be confused with the flowering variety Tropaeolum, which is an entirely different species. Nasturtium and Watercress do however offer something in common. Both plants will produce a peppery like flavor when consumed. These herbs will be ready for harvesting in roughly 60 days. The plants can be trimmed as needed, but never harvest more than 1/3 of the plant at any given time.
