An introduction by breeder Frank Morton, that nearly took over the garden cress market (in fact it is now sold by many large seed companies) and for good reason. The leaves are more upright than usual garden cress varieties, making cutting easier. Greens are ready soon after sowing and can be cut multiple times. Somewhat late to bolt too, one must get in tune with the (short) season if seeds are the product to harvest ! OSSI-Pledged variety.

    As with many Brassicas’ family plants, loves cool springtime weather. Direct sow; it grows fast; successive seedings will work best for a continuous supply.
