How to Grow Land Cress and Watercress
Watercress is a dark green, leafy vegetable with a bitter, peppery taste.
It's bitter taste is cause for most people to avoid it. This member for the
mustard family grows in streambeds, another reason it is not found in the
home garden. Watercress is harvested before the flowers bloom as it becomes
too bitter and pungent to eat.
It is used in salads, and as a garnish. It is very perishable, so plan to
buy it the day you serve it. You can keep it in the refrigerator for short
periods of time, but keep it in water.
Herbal applications: Water cress is used for bladder and kidney problems.
