Cress - Broad-leaved

Lepidium sativum

NOTE. ‘Number of seeds’ is misprinted on the seed packet – 600 seeds is the quantity.

An easy-to-grow herb used in sprout form on salads, sandwiches, or as a garnish on dishes. Incredibly rich in vitamins and nutritious. The variety can be cultivated year-round indoors on plates or in bowls, either in soil, hydroponically, or on a damp paper.

This variety is our creative director, Anders Espinoza’s, favorite herb and a breakfast ingredient he simply can’t do without. “So easy to grow, yet incredibly delicious!” to quote him exactly.
