Wrinkled Crinkled Cress (30 Days)

The taste and appearance of the Wrinkled Crinkled Cress is a bit different than the other cress we carry. When you first taste the finely cut, wrinkly, crinkly leaves it brings on a warm spicy flavor then surprisingly ends with a burst of sweetness. It is a splendid addition for a salad mix and can be fun to experiment with its distinctive flavor in the kitchen. The Wrinkled Crinkled Cress resists bolting well so you can have a few harvests from one planting.
