Wrinkled Crinkled Crumpled Cress

Cress on Foodista

Annual.  Try this garden cress with curly ruffled leaves for its tangy peppery crunch that gives a crisp zing to salads and sandwiches – a great way to jazz up meals.  Wrinkled Crinkled Crumpled Cress has been an overwhelming hit with many cress connoisseurs and baby leaf lettuce producers since it was developed by Frank Morton’s creative organic breeding.  Similar to watercress, it is a cross between a broad leaf and a curly cress, but with more intense piquancy.  Its crisp upright leaves make for easy cutting.  Forget about using parsley as a garnish!  Replace it with these frilly beauties.  Very unique!  Baby leaves can be cut as early as 21 days after sowing.  Very slow to bolt.  May also be grown indoors on a sunny windowsill.  ~  Botanical Interests

  1. I would love to grow my own radishes! City living can pose some challenges to gardening though. Someday I’ll figure it all out!

  2. Thanks for stopping by, Tristan. I grow my radishes in containers. Last year in I gallon pots even! If you have a sunny window sill, it will work. Have a great day!

  3. Wowza! My favorite green EVER is wirnkled crinkled crumpled cress. I have some growing right now for my fall salads.
